The Cab Driver On A Rainy Day May 26, 2012 – Posted by lovelightbug
I woke up the other day to a phone call from a taxi driver who had my friend’s cell phone.

My friend had apparently left it in the cab the night before. The driver had called others but I was the first one who had answered.

It was a rainy morning which for cab drivers in this big city is a very busy time. He asked me where he could drop the cell phone off. I told him the street where I lived and quickly jumped out of bed and got dressed so I could meet him on the corner. I guessed that if he had taken on a passenger of two he could have made some good money from driving all that distance.

When he arrived I thanked him and blessed him for having such a kind and beautiful soul. I was so happy for my friend who had only recently moved to this country – and I could only imagine how important his cell phone was to him!

I asked the taxi driver for his name so my friend could thank him in person. He said my blessings and gratitude was all that he needed. Then he drove off.

I e-mailed my friend telling him I had his phone and then met up with him to tell him how I had received it. Along with the phone I handed him a Smile card on behalf of the taxi driver and myself. My friend smiled even wider after reading the card and said he couldn’t believe such kindness existed in this big city.

Now he can’t wait to pay it forward!
