A Random Deed of Mercy

Thanks for the Water Rescue!

Recently, on a rainy day, a co-worker and I were leaving work when we discovered that the parking area was flooded. The walkway itself had a little "lake" that would be difficult to cross. Before we knew it, a man came to our rescue. He noticed us struggling to figure out how we would avoid getting soaked. Without a second's thought, this man came riding onto the sidewalk with his truck. We jumped into the bed of his truck and were off to drier land. I was so grateful for his help. Just like that, he went on his way. Not long after, I was dry and cozy in my car and about to leave when I saw another co-worker about to meet the same fate of getting drenched or maybe getting a cold by shuffling through our little "lake." I decided I would pay back the favor that was just handed to me, and I saved her from treading in overflowing waters. The feeling you have knowing there still is good out in the world is just priceless!
