Tires and Friendship

I had another post topic for today, but decided to change it today during lunch.  I was touched by something that happened to me during lunch, and wanted to share it.
I have been having a weird, crazy week.  It seems everything I have touched at work has been a barrel of trouble; we’ve had VBS this week so I am exhausted because I’m not getting to bed until 11:30 or so, I blew out my knee… and so on.
My boss scheduled a one-on-one meeting this morning with me.  It was a very promising meeting, but when I got back to my desk, the receptionist had called and left me a message that I had a flat tire.
Can I handle anymore crazy this week?
I called her back and confirmed it was my vehicle, then called my husband and mom to make plans to fix my tire and to get me to VBS this afternoon.  My husband asked me to go check to see if anything was in the tire that I could see.
Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, but after hurting my knee yesterday it is very hard for me to walk.
I sent a message to my friend’s husband (they both work with me) and asked if he could take a peek when he went to lunch.  He sent me a message back and asked me to bring my keys down to the lobby.
The next thing I know, him and his friend are changing my tire for me. 
In the heat.
On their lunch.
The one guy I have never met, and my friend’s husband I have only spent time with a handful of times. 
Yet, these two guys changed my tire out of the goodness of their hearts.
Most of you might not think this is a strange occurrence, but most people I am acquainted with wouldn’t help someone else out unless they were going to benefit.  It’s a sad, sad world sometimes.
But, these two guys must have been raised right.  These two guys didn’t except anything but a thank you.  They came to my rescue and installed my spare tire so I could get to VBS on time.
Guess I need to get my tire fixed.  And bake some brownies.
Thanks guys!

    you know the saying what goes around comes around and if you are kind to someone they will be kind to you AND what was that movie that the little boy died and he kept passing it on good deeds and everyone in the show passed it on…..the name of the movie escapes me

  2. We call that a God sighting here. What a great confirmation that things will get better and that there really are good people in the world.

    Hope you are healing well!

    Thanks for sharing here at NOBH!
