I did something today that I have literally NEVER in my entire life done before.
I was on my way home from D's playgroup and saw a woman on the side of the highway standing next to her car waving her arms trying to flag down passing cars. I stopped. I have no idea what possessed me. Everything happened very fast, and I guess I thought I could call for help if she didn't have a cell phone. Who knew if there was a medical emergency or something.
It turned out that she and her sister (also standing by the car) had run out of gas, and only had like $1.75 between the two of them. Again, I have no idea what possessed me, but I gave one of the girls a ride to a gas station, gave her a couple of bucks to get more gas ($3.75 total... lol) and drove her back to the car.
I could have been robbed. I could have had my car stolen. Something could have happened to my two year old in the back seat. Who knows? But none of that happened. I went on with my day with nothing but the memory of that little interaction.
I think something told me to stop. I can't explain it...
I guess I figured I can use all the good karma I can get.
**UPDATE** We ordered Chinese food tonight for the first time in several months. My fortune said, "Courtesy pays."
Do you believe in signs?
