Sometimes the small things

After leaving the movie theatre late at night, from watching probably the greatest movie ever! I was driving on the highway and on my way home I saw a man walking beside the road. Being super tired from dry land training, fishing, then working. I wasn’t feeling generous. But after I passed him my conscious gave me a tug and I knew I needed to turn around. So i did. After I picked him up, to my surprise, he knew my name. He knew I skied and he said I had picked him up about 4 or 5 years earlier, gave him some cash and that ride had made the biggest difference for his life. He would never forget me or my name. After i dropped him off at his home. I couldn’t hold back the smile and the tears are still trying to escape. I helped this man get back on his feet and now he’s standing on his own. All I know, is I don’t regret turning around to pick him up. I’m happy i did it, and I think he just made the bigger difference in my life.
