Take a look at this from
“Love What Matters”
“My husband has spent most of his time in the hospital ICU since the start of January due to various health problems. Just this past Monday, he underwent surgery to amputate his leg, just below the knee. We were both relieved and somewhat astonished when they discharged him on Friday.
Upon arriving home, we encountered a challenge – I couldn’t assist him in entering the house. His strength and balance were not as he had anticipated, preventing him from using crutches to navigate the steps. Even with his mother’s assistance, we reached a critical moment where he ended up on the concrete steps, and there simply wasn’t enough strength to lift him back up.
Amidst this situation, an unknown individual initially passed by in their vehicle and subsequently returned, driving slowly and gazing in our direction. They then entered our yard and inquired if we required assistance.
This kind-hearted man lifted my husband from the steps and carried him inside our home. We were deeply moved and immensely thankful for this compassionate individual who took the time to assist us. Yet, the story didn’t conclude there. The following morning, he returned with his father, seeking permission to construct a ramp. This stranger became our hero not once, but twice within a 24-hour span. His acts of kindness not only saved the day but also brought a much-needed spark of hope to our lives during these challenging months. Like a breath of fresh air, he has rekindled optimism in our home through his benevolence.
This stranger has now become a cherished friend named Steven Smith.
Our gratitude knows no bounds, and we are thankful to have had him enter our lives when he did.”
