According to Enid Blyton's story, there was once a man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho on a lonely mountain road.
There were robbers in the mountain. They robbed him and beaten him up badly. He was left wounded by the roadside. Nobody around to help
Soon he heard the foot steps of a Priest. He thought he was saved as Priest is a man of God. But then the Priest cross over to the other side of the road and pretend didn't see nor heard his cries for help.
No long after that came a Levite man who had helped in the church. The man thought he would certainly help him. But then once again his hope was dashed.
Then came a man on a donkey from Samaria. The man thought the Samaritan would certainly won't help him as Samaritan is notorious for being bad.
To his surprise, the Samaritan came over and helped him. Brought him to an inn and paid for his room and board. He make sure the poor man was taken good care off.
Jesus told this story so that people might know what is to be a good friend.
Recently we have come across some very Good Samaritans too.
Mamarazzi have been unwell a few weeks ago and Papa was overseas for work. Unable to fly home immediately.
Good Samaritan comes out from everywhere to help and took care of Mamarazzi and me. They are :
Mommy Ling, who dropped by nearly daily "tapau-ing" food for Mamarazzi and me. Pan mee, Red Bean Dessert, economy noodles, buying grocery and even brighten my day with a pack of Vitagen. Refusing to accept any $$. Even offer to babysit me should the needs arise.
Auntie Little Bird, whose "evil heart" made kikisi for me to eat and bought me Dan Neh Noh Happy Meal to cheer me up. She also offer to take me in.
Auntie Claire, whose constant sensible advices and prayer calmed Mamarazzi down.
Auntie Chee Yee and Kor Kor Manglish whose messages gave cheer to Mamarazzi.
Uncle Alex, who is Mamarazzi old friend and trusty insurance agent who came to visit and advices on matter regarding to insurance claims. If you wanna get insurance, there is no better agent than him.
Auntie Siew who took leave to accompany Mamarazzi to the Hospital and even offer financial help should the need arise.
Last but not least Uncle Patrick and Auntie Florence who sacrifice time, money and effort in chauffeuring Mamarazzi to and fro to clinics and hospital. Ya..dumb dumb Mamarazzi had a phobia on driving.
They waited with us in clinics and hospital for hours.
Auntie Florence even stay over to take care of me fearing that Mamarazzi might faint after taking a whole loads of medicine. And Uncle Patrick had to take a cab for his medical check up cause Auntie Florence was taking Mamarazzi to see the Doctor.
How to repay these Good Samaritans? Can't. Mamarazzi just hope that she could be a good friend to them like the Samaritan in the story during their time of need as they have done in our time of need.
