A Nice Story on the Road

In every road we take, just as in life, there are many inspiring and heart warming stories that will strike our heart. One of which was when I met a woman while on the road. I was driving my car on the way to family reunion some time ago. I was arranging my dashcam, and i was also trying to dashcam test 2018  it, when I saw a young lady who might have been in her early 20s who signalled that she will hitch hike. I am not the type who agrees with hitchhiking. In fact, I haven’t met someone and let someone into my car, someone i do not know will not enter my car alone. But there is something with her. I think she needs help and so i agreed to. She said she will go to a charity house, an orphaned for the poor and the elderly near the town i will go to. My sister had arrange a private event in a resort hotel near the charity house.

And so I agreed. She is Marga. She is a 23 year old volunteer who is looking for someone to help her their faster as she is running out of time. She said she is just fulfilling a promise to an elderly woman to bring her back a photo album in their old house which is now abandone. The photo album, which contains memorable photos of her family, has been left in their old house and the old woman was looking after it. She said she wants have it in her bed, wants to look at it every time she will sleep and everytime she will wake up. Marga, who then was talking to the old woman, promised she will look after it and will do the best that she can. When she found it, a volunteer in the charity institution said the elderly woman is now looking for it, crying, and pleading as if she is being crazy and Marga knows the only way she can be calmed down is through the album. And now, I saw heer on the road. She said she can’t book a bus ticket going their because it’s the holidays and many people have already pre booked their ticket. In short, she was running out of tickets. She can’t wait until tomorrow. And so she started walking hoping to find someone who can help her. She thanked me and gave me a bracelet whom she said she hand made. It was a beautiful hand crafted bracelet which I am now wearing. Anyway, I did not know what happened next but all i know is that I am happy for being able to help people. I know that little favour made ripples and some people’s lives and even though I do not know them personally, it is as if I have fulfilled something that cannot be bought by money alone. And I feel really blessed because of that.
