Sometimes, we forget just how blessed we are until we see someone who is less fortunate than us but still manages to be a source of inspiration. This Facebook user in Singapore shared a heartwarming post to remind us that we should always count our blessings and be thankful for what we have.
He said, “I made an order for a cup of bubble tea from I-Tea for my wife via GrabFood. The outlet for the rider to collect is in Tampines which will be sent to my residence at Bedok Reservoir. By car, this trip would take about 10-12 minutes, a bicycle 15-20 minutes, an electronic scooter probably 12-15 minutes.”
After 30 minutes, he started to get rather impatient as it was taking longer than usual for his bubble tea to arrive. He tracked the person’s movements on the app and it seems that the driver was moving quite slowly.
“At times I wondered if this driver was walking instead of using some other mode of transportation. Finally, as the driver’s icon on the GPS passed by my unit, I realised that he/she had missed the carpark entrance and got even more agitated. I looked out my window, scanning the area when suddenly I saw something that left me in awe: A GrabFood rider on a motorised wheelchair making its way slowly along the pavement right in front of our block.”
Feeling a sudden hunch that she was the one delivering his order, he quickly ran down to meet her. He went down to the lift lobby and approached her, where she confirmed that she was indeed the GrabFood driver who travelled down from Tampines.
“I felt for her. I was getting a little emotional but tried to remain calm as my daughter was next to me. As she passed me the drink (as I’ve made the payment via GrabPay), I quickly reached for my wallet and passed her whatever cash I had in it. I was a little shocked, to be honest. I was lost for words.”
He said this experience provided a valuable moment for him to share with his daughter. He concluded the post with heartfelt gratitude to his steadfast courier.
“Masya-Allah (God willing). The perseverance she showed to overcome the challenges being put on her. May Allah provide her with the strength, hope, and sustenance to continue being the inspiration to other able-bodied people like you and me.”
The original poster also shared how he gave her excellent ratings for her service.
Netizens were touched and expressed their thoughts in the comments, with some even sharing their encounter with the brave driver.
Truly, sometimes we take so much of what we have for granted. We’d all be better and happier humans by being grateful for the blessings in our lives.
What a touching story, we have to say kudos to Grab for empowering disabled people to inspire others!
