Ditch!






I only work half a day on friday so that means the rest of the day is going to be spend either shopping or going with my friends for coffee while we trade stories about our lives and our family back home. Since I carpool with my co-worker Linda and I was the driver this week I just told her to take me to starbucks where I will meet my friend Jeanette and she'll drive me back to her house to get my car at her house later that day.

After Jeanette and I went with our day going around the shops we both decided to head back home. My friend suggested that we drive around using country road because we both love to sight see and just talk in the car privately in our native tounge. So we drove and drove around looking for beautiful houses and frontyard then she decided to check this "crate myrtle" nursery which is a good 10 mins drive out of our way.

We finally had our fun sightseeing and head back home. After about 15 mins of driving she noticed that it seems we were lost. We knew we're suppose to turn left to an intersection but we ran into a dead end. As we we're debating about which way we're suppose to have there's a car behind us so I told her to pulled the car to the side and continue our debate. Yes she pulled the car at the side of the road and we ended up in a ditch.

Both of us got scared, we're at an unfamiliar road with fewer cars on the road. Lo and behold an older guy in a mercedez pulled over and asked us if we need to call a tow truck crew. We couldn't think straight the next thing we knew there's a young guy (probably in his 20's) who also pulled over and helped us. It was so fast the younger guy has pulled up the front tire of the car and the other guy pushed the back tire back to the ground while my friend put her car in reverse and next thing I knew viola her car was able to get out of the ditch. We are grateful for these two good samaritans who has helped us. I believe that angels do exist and most times it's total stranger who just come and go in an instant after they've helped you.

I happened to snapped a photo of these two super heroes that we are so grateful for helping us. It's truly a wonderful experience.
