Sometimes, life moves too quickly for us to be prepared. This woman was pulled over when a State Trooper realized that the boys in her car were too young to be riding around without car seats.
Why are the two boys in the back seat not in car seats?” Trooper Tidwell asked.
She explained that she had just picked up the two boys the night before…you see, they were foster children and had come to her with nothing but the clothing on their backs. They didn’t have luggage or toys. They didn’t have car seats. Here is was, mid-December, and the boys didn’t even have coats.
The Trooper asked for her phone number and let them go. Soon after, she received a call from the Trooper’s wife who asked all about the boys. How old were they, what size did she think they were, and a few more probing questions before hanging up the phone.
The next morning, the Trooper met this mom with a bucket full of gifts for all three boys – not just the two in the backseat, but for their older brother who had been in the front.
I cannot thank him enough for the kindness he has shown these three boys. I never asked him for anything. He and his wife acted out of the kindness of their hearts. He showed these boys that there are very nice cops out there and I hope he has left a lasting impression on them that cops are good. The boys have been telling everyone that ‘cops are nice.’ He has made their day. You hear way too much negative stuff now days so, here is some good news for you all.”
And that, many people have agreed, is what the holiday season is all about.
