Getting re-situated after having to go to the emergency room can be a stressful experience, and it makes the kindness and gentleness of the people around all the more meaningful.
While in the hospital’s E.R., Ashley Cherry witnessed a stranger offer and drive home an elderly lady who had no one to come and pick her up.
“I hardly post things on fb but today I just couldn’t help myself,” Ashley explained. “My husband and I were in the ER and an elderly lady was wheeled out to leave. She told the receptionist she had no family or ride home. All of the sudden this AMAZING gentleman who had been waiting with his wife approached the lady and told her he would gladly take her home.”
The kind man did not know the older lady, and declined her offer to pay him for driving her home.
“This man not knowing her or having a clue where she lived volunteered his time to care of this lovely woman. She offered to pay but he kindly declined like any good man would. As he went to get his truck I wheeled her out and put her in the vehicle.”
“As I watched them drive away my only thoughts were “there are still great people in this world” and “We have to care for our elders like this nice man.”
As the man drove the older woman home, his wife waited for him in the E.R. and Ashley was able to talk with her.
“I did get a little info from his wife. His name is Jeffery and he is military here at Ft.Campbell Ky. Not only does this man serve our great country, he serves his great little community. I just wanted to give a little recognition and respect to this man. Jeffery, if you see this, just know your deeds are recognized and appreciated by your community. Thank you Sir for serving our country and our community. Please feel free to like and share.”
Being there for someone in need not only blesses the one who receives, but also blesses the giver, and blesses all of those around by showing them something beautiful.
You are Loved.
