We live in a great community

Yesterday, I picked up books at the library. Back in my car, I was driving very slowly – at the next corner my brakes did not work. I slewed my car around the corner.

Yesterday, I picked up books at the library. Back in my car, I was driving very slowly – at the next corner my brakes did not work. I slewed my car around the corner.

By now, shaking with fear, I turned into the fire and rescue parking lot. I saw myself crashing into this wall or into that car, but for some odd reason I put my moving car into park and in the middle of the parking lot it actually stopped.

Shaking, I got out of the car, but I had to hold onto the door just to stay upright. A man came to see what had brought me there. Patiently, he listened, and three more firemen came out. One rolled out a chair for me, another man draped a coat over me, yet another man tried my car and parked it.

Overwhelmed by their kindness, I simmered down a bit. Their calm way to think on my behalf  helped me so very much. A tow truck was ordered and it came quite soon.

I am so very grateful to these good men who live in Abbotsford. I really would like your readers to know what a great community we live in.
