Love What Matters
“My husband has been in the hospital ICU more often than not since the beginning of January, for a multitude of issues. This past Monday, he had his leg amputated to a little below his knee. We were happy and a little surprised that they released him on Friday.
Then we got home…and I couldn’t get him in the house. He didn’t have the strength or balance yet, like he hoped, to use crutches to get up the steps. There was no way I could get him up them with the wheelchair. There became a critical point where he ended up down on the concrete steps, and even with his Mothers help, there was not enough strength to lift him up.
This stranger drove by during this time, and then circled back around slowly, looking in our direction. Next, he pulled into our yard and asked if we needed help.
This gentleman picked my husband up off the steps and brought him into the house. We were pretty emotional at that time and so grateful for this angel that took the time to help. But it didn’t end there. The next morning he came back with his Dad and asked permission to build a ramp. This stranger saved the day for us twice within 24 hours. He also brightened our spirits that had become increasingly dimmed over the difficult months. Like a breath of fresh air he is, and there is a sense of optimism back in our home because of his kindness.
This stranger, is now a friend…. His name is Steven Smith.
We can’t thank him enough and thank God for bringing him to us when he did.”
