Is your heart becoming frosty again with the recent drop in temperature?
As for many things, please note the Netherlands is (in)famous for its acute changes in temperature: we can go from 38 Centigrade to 18 Centigrade within a single day, easily! Last week they told us it was the hottest November ever and today the weather report said “snow before the end of the week.”
So if you are like me and you’re finding yourself a bit grumped out over all these sudden changes (we are currently on a steep descend in temperature… very, very steep), you might also find yourself in need of a good Heart Warmer, too.
I honestly think I found a really good one! This heart warmer is sure to bring a smile to your face:
Last week, there was a collision on a high way in the Netherlands involving three cars. Two of the victims were a young mother and her 10 month old baby. The mother had some injuries (luckily nothing too severe) and had to go to hospital, but the baby was fine. Well, physically fine. The poor little bundle of joy was so upset and scared by what happened, he couldn’t stop crying.
A female police officer, who was first to arrive at the accident site, didn’t think twice: she immediately wrapped up the baby in a blanket and started rocking him like it was her own child. She kept him close as his mother was transported to the hospital, and searched for children’s videos on YouTube, because, as she claimed: “I have a child the same age who loves the Teletubbies. I thought they might soothe this baby boy, too.”
All the while, she stayed in contact with the baby’s mother, to make sure she was fine and let her know her son was fine, too.
Mother and son are doing well, now.
The policewoman later stated: “I am a police officer, but also a mother” and explained how her mother’s instincts simply took over.
This selfless act of love deserves to be the Heart Warmer of this week, don’t you think? ❤
Let this story warm you heart, bring you a smile, and inspire you to be the best person you can be.
At least until next week’s Heart Warmer 😉
