A New Zealand woman is sharing the wonderful story of being on the receiving end of a beautiful act of kindness. In a story featured on the “Love What Matters” Facebook page, a woman named Tegan Langley explains how a mystery man footed the bill for a set of brand new tires after noticing that hers were dangerously worn.
“A beautiful miracle happened to me today,” Langley writes.
“While sitting in Pimpama McDonald’s carpark waiting for an appointment a gentleman who I later found out was named Tony approached my car window. He asked if I knew about the state of my tires. I explained that I knew I needed new ones but at the moment simply couldn’t afford it. He asked me if I would follow him to Bridgestone Pimpama across the road to see what they could do for me.”
Langley was baffled by this stranger’s determination to help her out.
“This complete stranger, Tony explained he couldn’t live with himself if he walked away from the situation knowing they were about to blow at anytime,” she added.
Asking for no repayment whatsoever, Tony, who was with his two young sons, simply requested that Langley “pay it forward” when the time is right for her.
“Tony didn’t expect anything in return but asked me that one day when I’m in the position where I’m able to help someone I pay it forward. $535 dollars, a lot of tears on my behalf, a few hugs, three brand new tires, a wheel alignment later and the offer to fuel up my car he left. No last name, no contact number, Just Tony the gentle giant with his two beautiful sons teaching them a life lesson,” Langley shares.
“Tony if this ever reaches you, thank you! Thank you for your utterly selfless act, your kind words, for restoring my faith in humanity. From the bottom of my heart thank you!”
So good! What if we all looked for ways to show kindness to someone who needed it today?
