A few weeks ago on my way home from work there was a man stranded by the roadside. He was having car trouble... he wasn't in a car... it was a jeep or something... didn't pay too much attention to the actual vehicle but did pay attention to the fact that he was having trouble.
I passed him by but looked in my review mirror and that voice inside my head said "turn around and make sure he's ok." So, I listened to my voice and turned at the next u-turn place and drove back... I locked my doors and rolled down the window enough to ask if he needed help. I knew I couldn't get out and change a flat tyre... well, I knew I WOULDN'T get out and change a flat tyre, whether I could or not is not important.
He said he was fine, his friend was coming to help him. I was very thankful that he was ok and help was coming. I'm so glad I turned around to make sure he was ok. I hope if I'm ever in that situation someone would stop to help me.

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom and all the Moms I know... and the special Mom to be that I know!!! I hope your day is special. My day will be special as I am spending the day with my American girlfriend. We will probably start out at Starbucks and then make our way to TGIFridays for lunch. It's become tradition now as we've been doing it for years. Some years other friends join us, some years it's just the two of us... it's always a great day. I will hear from my Sons... I usually do. Sons, I love you and I hope you are spoiling the lady in your lives.
