Many of us are so busy with our day-to-day lives that we don’t always take the time to look around and see what is actually taking place. It can happen to any of us and sometimes, it may even seem as if we don’t care any longer. For some, however, the need to help others is deeply ingrained and they may do so without even thinking twice about it.
In some cases, people may also feel as if they are entitled and the ability to work hard is something that seems to be rather elusive. From the time they are little boys, they are not taught how to be a gentleman and to treat others with respect. Unfortunately, this has left society full of a lot of men that are not worth their salt.
From time to time, however, we hear a story that really makes us believe in human nature once again. Although it may be rare to hear the stories, they are something that can truly touch your heart and it shows us that there are still men out there who are interested, not only in themselves but in complete strangers as well. That is what you are going to discover when you hear this story from a wife and mother named Tara Carter.
Tara had just picked up some food for her family and she was on her way back home with her husband, Chris. Suddenly, Chris turned the Jeep around and told her to take the food back home and then come back and get him.
She didn’t know what made Chris turn the car around on that day, she just said okay and went around to get in the driver’s seat.
That is when she saw what caught Chris’s attention. An elderly man was out with a push mower and was trying to do his own yard. Chris went over without saying a word, took his mower and mowed the lawn for him.
Tara was quite proud of her husband and what he did that day.
“I pray that my son learns from this and randomly helps people do things like his father does,” she posted on Facebook.
Unfortunately, these occurrences are somewhat rare today and it may surprise us when we hear about them. We are thankful to learn that this attitude still does exist, however, and we could certainly like to see more men like Chris in the world.
Our hope is that their son grows up to learn about what his father did that day and he copies it in his own life.
