In honor of Good Samaritan Day, I wanted to share what happened to me last night. I was on my way to my women’s mentor group at the tail end of rush hour. Right before I was about to turn onto the highway, my car stalled and the engine started smoking. I was literally stuck in the middle lane of a 5 lane road (meaning 5 lanes all going westbound).

Luckily, I was only about 5 minutes from home, so my husband drove over in our truck and was able to stop traffic long enough to push me to the side. Without even asking, another motorist jumped out of his car to help my husband push when he saw us struggling to get up the incline.

He ran off before we could even properly thank him, but it touched me. As I sat there with smoke coming out of my hood, not knowing whether I should stay in my car or abandon it for the side of the road, I watched many motorists drive by or honk angrily because I was in the center of the road. But truth be told, I don’t know if I would stop either.

It seemed only fitting that on Good Samaritan day, I should not only thank the selfless man who helped me, but reflect on the times I was “too busy” to help someone else. And I’m not just talking about motorists on the side of the road. Let’s face it, we all have moments we could help others, but don’t want to be bothered. Hopefully, that will change.

Oh, and for those of you wanting to know what happened: we had to wait almost 3 hours for AAA to come
(honestly, it was a VERY frustrating experience). I made it home by 9:30, but we still don’t know what’s wrong with our van. Say a prayer for poor “Odessa”. ?

May we all seek for ways to be helpful in our everyday lives and seek our opportunities to help those in need around us.

Stay in the know on the go:
