Alexandria Living Magazine – A Stranger’s Act of Kindness

Just a little announcement:

I’m excited to let you know I have another essay appearing in the current issue of Alexandria Living magazine!

It’s always a thrill to work with the kind folks at the magazine and as an Alexandria, Virginia resident it is especially fun to contribute.

Below is the link to my piece in the online version of Alexandria Living. Check it out, and if you like, please comment on the magazine website in the space they provide just below the essay.

We would love to hear your feedback!

Thanks again to all those who’ve asked what I’ve been up to lately. Blogging continues to be great fun and has proven to be an exciting pathway to opportunities like this. Exciting!

  11. Wonderful twist to your story. So many lessons for all involved. Does your auto insurance, perchance offer auto assistance? I also locked my keys in the car recently and help arrived within minutes. Although, I suppose if everyone was rescued so quickly, the lessons would have been lost. Ah, life is grand. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming story.
