Hard-Working Woman No Longer Has to Walk to Work Thanks to This Kind Man
Lifestyle| | By Brian Delpozo
A young man gave a hard-working woman the gift of transportation.
It began when he saw a woman he recognized from a local restaurant walking to work, Greg Ballog shared with Love What Matters on Facebook.
“As I’m heading to work this morning I see Tina (lady who makes my pizzas @ Pie Five) walking down Keller parkway. I pull over and ask if I can give her a ride. She smiles like always and gets in the car…. mind you Pie Five is about 2 miles away from where I picked her up,” said Ballog.
Over the course of the ride, the two began talking about her life. According to Ballog, “She expressed to me she started that job 7 months ago and walks 4 miles every day for work. I said to her… ‘Wow, I know that’s hard on your body; that’s got to be exhausting.’ She giggled and said ‘Yah, but what can you do Greg? I need the job… life doesn’t stop. So I make it work. I used to have a bike, but it broke and I don’t have another one.'”
Ballog shared the woman’s story with an acquaintance, and the two decided to buy the woman a bike.
“Her face when she saw the bike was more than words could express,” said Ballog. “She said… ‘I am so thankful and don’t know what to say.'”
Ballog’s post concludes his description of the event and why he decided to help Tina in the first place.
“GET TO KNOW PEOPLE! Ask questions, ask about their struggles, ask what you can pray for. God has called us to serve and love your neighbor as you love yourself. If people truly truly truly truly understood that and did that a lot of the crap that is going on in this world wouldn’t be going on. There are people in need and they are in your own backyard. All you have to do is step out of ‘Your Circle.'”
