Every parent want a happy birthday for their child. So, in the hopes that everything goes according to plan, we move heaven and earth to make it happen.
But as we all know, problems can arise even on the most memorable days.
A mother in Charlotte, North Carolina, wanted to give her small son a memorable birthday, so she bought him a kiddie pool.
Swimming would be the ideal exercise given the extreme heat outside.
The mother first set up the kiddie pool in their yard before filling it.
She could only fill it up with pots because she lacked a hose.
She would enter, fill a pot, and then exit, emptying it into the swimming pool. It would take a lot of time and pots to complete.
Her kids were waiting and watching in the background. They had no idea whether they would be able to go swimming that day.
The mom was desperately trying to fill the pool. Fortunately, a firetruck passed by at that time.
The firefighters felt horrible after observing what the woman was attempting. They could tell the kids were growing impatient on such a scorching day, and they knew it would take her forever to fill the pool up that way. They chose to lend a hand.
They took the truck’s hose and used it to fill the little pool.
The eagerness of the kids for the water was evident in their bouncing. The mother found it hard to believe. She was grateful and relieved at the same time. She would no longer have to add additional water to the pots or stress over whether her son’s birthday party would turn out as she had anticipated.
About the occurrence, Charlotte Fire Station 18 published a post.
The government was incredibly proud of their firefighters. The message read:
“Firehouse 18 is a local fire station staffed by men and women who genuinely care about the families they have sworn to defend. After leaving a medical call today, Engine 18 came across a family anxiously trying to fill a kiddie pool for a young boy’s birthday on this hot day by pouring pots from the sink.
It went on:
What for us was a straightforward duty resulted in amusement, smiles, and a lasting experience for both the guys on Engine 18 and the children in the area. “Proud to serve the WESTSIDE!”
These firefighters didn’t have to take a break from their work to assist this woman in filling up her swimming pool. However, they did it out of goodwill for others.
They identified a problem and had a solution. They decided to assist a person in need. It demonstrates what extraordinary individuals they are.
