The Kindness of Strangers

When I woke up this morning my husband asked me if I had heard about the act of kindness that was being featured all over the radio? I never did hear it on the radio, but I found the story on the internet.

A woman took her car into the garage to be repaired. When she was told the repairs would cost $350.00 she told the mechanic it would take over a month to save that kind of money because her husband had just lost his job.

Another client waiting for his car overheard the conversation and the woman's desperation. He paid the bill for her. No strings attached.

When the woman contacted the local paper to thank the stranger publicly, the newspaper did some sleuthing to discover who he was. Paul LeBlanc, president of Southern New Hampshire University.

Today I sent Mr. LeBlanc some dakbands!
