Sometimes when you need it most, a guardian angel steps in to offer a helping hand.
That's what happened to one single mother this week, after she received some distressing news from her electricity supplier.
A fellow passenger on her train, which was departing an army base in Lod, Israel, described the story over Love What Matters Facebook page.
"Today, as part of my regular routine, I get on the train that leaves the Lod station at 4:27 PM on the way back home from the base.
"I sit down by the window, put in my earphones, and I begin unwinding after my day’s work, when suddenly I’m hearing a conversation from a young woman, a soldier like me, who subsists on a soldier’s salary, and an only child of a single mother.
"And she’s begging the electric company not to disconnect her electricity at home until the 28th, when her mother receives her Social Security pension (The mother subsists solely on this pension.).
"And they, as usual, are indifferent, And disconnected the electricity. Meanwhile, she’s crying hysterically.
"And then suddenly, an angel appears out of nowhere, 'Kidnaps' her phone, pays out of his own pocket her sizable debt of $500, and gives her the confirmation number. And, he did it with great love, so this young woman could regain her peace.
"A man of action, humility, and the biggest heart I’ve ever seen. I get off the train filled with hope and faith in people. There are still a few good ones who do for others without the expectation of anything in return."
The poster named the man in question, Ophir Yitchak, and even included a picture.
What a gorgeous story.
Here's hoping that woman can pay it forward and help someone else out down the line.
