“What a Gift that Is”

This story touched me and I believe it will touch you too.  A single dad with an autistic child and a job as a dishwasher, a broken van, a $1,500 bill it took him six months to save the money to pay, and a kind-hearted mechanic who made a world of difference for this small family.

Kindness for a single dad

With Love,

Russ

    As soon as I read about the transmission falling apart. understood his dilemma…Rick has worked on these and they have millions of pieces that have to go in…in an exact sequence. An impossible job if you don’t know what you’re doing. So glad that the mechanic had a heart. 😀
