One day a young teacher was driving alone, wondering how he was going to afford supplies for his classroom, when he saw an elderly lady stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire.
He pulled his sputtering old truck in front of her sedan and suggested: “Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm while I change this tire for you? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.”
Bryan’s shirt was smudged with grease and his knuckles were scraped by the time he changed her flat tire, but he refused to take any payment from the lady. He asked instead that she give assistance to the next person who looked like they might need it.
After waiting to make sure she drove off safely, Bryan left as well.
The lady turned off at a small coffee shop a few miles down the road to take the chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. There, she noticed the waitress with a sweet smile was pregnant.
She paid for her coffee with a hundred dollar bill and while the waitress went to get change, the lady slipped out the door, but wrote a note on the napkin: “No change necessary, just do something for another person who needs it.” Under the napkin were four more $100 bills.
That night when the waitress got home from work, her husband was already sleeping so she tucked the cash into his work bag with a note “For school supplies”. She climbed into bed and whispered: “I love you, Bryan” before falling asleep
