This weekend, Hubby and I both drove to the outskirts of Hamilton, NZ. We were happily returning a much-needed borrowed car.
Here's what happened....
Many businesses in our area close up for 2 weeks at Christmastime. Just as this time of year started, our car died and our garage wouldn't be able to even look at it until January 6. *sigh*
We rented a car for a few days until one of Hubby's friends, Jay, said she knew of someone who had a car we could borrow for as long as we needed it. All we had to do is pick it up, about 4 hours drive from our house!
Off they went to pick it up; Jay drove on to Auckland and Hubby drove back home with a lovely Toyota Wish! I had never heard of that make before, but it was very nice to ride and drive. It was so good to know we had transportation, not knowing how long it would take to get ours fixed.
You should keep in mind that Jay's friend did not know us from Adam's house cat and they loaned us this great car solely on Jay's word that we were nice people!!
It was quite a relief that our car repairs weren't as expensive as the garage first told us it might be and that it was not a complicated fix, just a blown seal. (A definite answer to prayer!)
All I know is that the owner's name is Robin, so a big 'thank you' my dear lady! You are a life saver and I know that you will be blessed for your kindness to total strangers.
With all the negativity in the news lately, it's wonderful to know that there are still good people in the world.
