The thermometer was around -40 when I was leaving a grocery store one evening. I saw my bus pull up to the stop. I ran across the parking lot, sure I would make it, only to see the bus pull away as I neared.
It was cold and dark, and I had a long wait to look forward to until the next bus arrived.
Imagine my surprise when a car pulled up and honked. An angel named Sherry Mackenzie had seen my futile run and offered me a ride to catch up to the bus. I didn’t see her at first so she circled around and caught my attention. By that time, the bus was out of sight, but Sherry insisted on giving me a ride home with my groceries.
It takes a very brave and very caring soul to pick up a 6-foot-2 stranger at night and invite them into their car. Sherry, I really appreciate what you did.
