A life-changing moment can often be waiting around the corner, and can appear in the most unexpected ways. But for this to happen, we have to be alert and aware of the people around us. We all have a story - many of which are fascinating and can inspire others. This applies, not least, to our elderly.
A motorist, who shared his story on Facebook page 'Love What Matters', was out driving in his hometown of Martinsburg, USA, when he saw an elderly lady walking alone on the road.
Her name was Isabelle. She was 93-years-old and a full blooded Indian. She spoke passionately to him about her life: her five marriages, the mountains that surrounded her when she was growing up. She told him stories of Pearl Harbor, and the Hindenburg.
On the way back, Isabelle seemingly forgot the address. She asked the good-natured driver if he knew where she lived. He just smiled.
After a long period of driving and storytelling, Isabelle finally found her home. Before stepping out of the car, she turned to the man who'd stopped and picked her up.
