The Dog Story
I was recently reminded of this story from Joyce the author of the Hodgepodge.
Way back when my oldest was two years old, I was pulling him in a little red wagon on the sidewalk in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.
The rest of this story happened very fast.
Out of no where a big dog came running across the street.
The dog went right for Sam in the wagon. I jumped in front of the dog.
The dog growled and barked. He continued to go after Sam.
All of a sudden a little car jumped the curb and was driving on the sidewalk, right for the dog.
The fella driving yelled, "RUN!" I did, the other direction that he was chasing the dog with the car. I turned the corner and some other people that witnessed the entire ordeal came out to give me a hug.
When we have so much negative around us, it important to remember the good in people.
Strangers helping strangers.
I never did get to say "Thank You" to my rescuer in the little car.
How about you? Do you have a story of someone who helped you?
Have a great weekend!
