From Ninety Miles From Tyranny (by way of American Digest, where I first saw it):

Beautiful dying grace.

The greatest preacher I ever knew, and a very great man, though the world never knew him, once said that God has some task reserved just for us, and we have to be always watchful because we'll never know just what it is. Some of us might think that we'll be brave and face martyrdom, and mentally rehearse what we'll do when the moment comes, and then find that our job is some unexpected little job like this taxi driver who encountered a little old lady at the end of her life. And if we let the moment slip by without doing the right thing, there's no guarantee that we'll ever have another chance to make a difference. The driver intuited that afterwards as he ran through all the things that might have gone wrong - a grouchy driver, impatience making him leave a moment too soon... It's a creepy thing to feel that you could have missed your moment of grace by such a slim margin. But I don't think he has to worry; I think God will see that good deed on his record when his time comes and will tell him he did very well.
