There are Christmas Angels after all

I wanted to say a huge thank you to the people who stopped to help me on Dec. 17 when my scooter quit working near Wal-Mart.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to the people who stopped to help me on Dec. 17 when my scooter quit working near Wal-Mart.

I had been there for about 30 minutes or so and was getting a little worried about getting home as I have very limited walking.

There were a few people including a young lady, who stopped to help as well, I was not able to get your names, but thank you as well, and to the man and his wife who not only stopped to help me, but loaded my scooter on the back of their truck and then drove me home and helped me into the house a very huge thank you.

Looks like there are still Christmas Angels after all.
