A family’s car ran out of gas on a midwestern road. And it was decided that the father would walk the long way to the nearest service station while the mother remained with the children.
It was a sweltering hot day. The man hauled a heavy steel gas can while trudging past a construction site where the workers were lounging eating their lunches.
Pricked by compassion, one of the workers threw his keys over, offering the man his truck.
A couple hours later the grateful family returned with the vehicle.
All the family members today feel a special appreciation in their hearts whenever they pass a construction site.
