Children are taught at a young age to respect their elders and fortunately, this is a lesson that many follow as they become adults. As the elderly now live longer, they need more help with even the little things sometimes.

Fortunately, there are people out there who will recognize an opportunity to step in and help give our elders a hand. One such person is Chris Carter….

During a recent outing with his family, Chris saw an older man hunched over pushing a large lawnmower. Instead of driving by, Chris turned to his wife Tara and did something amazing.

Tara shared what happened next with the Love What Matters Facebook page. She was floored by her husband’s actions at first, but knew that what he did truly personifies his caring nature.

“This is one of the many reasons I love my husband. As we are driving home with Kylie and Gage, Chris suddenly turns the jeep around and says, ‘Take the food home and come back and get me.’ I didn’t know what he had seen but said okay.”

At first, Tara was a bit alarmed, but then what her husband does next warmed her heart. Chris’ generous, caring nature shone through and this Good Samaritan pulled over, then parked the car.

He hopped out of the vehicle and walked over to a stranger. The person appeared to be struggling a bit with the task at hand.
