Seeing the Fed Ex truck always excited Ryan Avila, a young boy with autism who loves trucks. And when the driver, George Thomas, found out, he went the extra mile to make the sweet child’s day. If you need to see just how great humans can be, look no further than this positive news story!
Ryan Avila is a seven-year-old boy on the spectrum. And his favorite thing? Trucks. All kinds of trucks. If it has wheels, he is all over it. He loves buses, bank trucks, dump trucks, semi-trucks, and especially delivery trucks!
On Easter morning, his mom got him a very special truck — a Fed Ex truck. And Ryan was just over the moon.
Later that morning, their delivery driver George Thomas pulled into the driveaway. He had another package to deliver, and he had no idea he was about to make Ryan's day.
Act Of Kindness From Fed Ex Truck Driver
While Ryan was enamored with his new truck, his grandmother announced the Fed Ex truck was outside and Ryan was so excited he rushed outdoors while he was still in his pajamas.
When Ryan's mom explained that he loves trucks and he had just gotten a Fed Ex truck for Easter, George didn't hesitate to bring Ryan more joy. George encouraged Ryan to go inside the truck and explore! During the visit, George learned just how special of a kid Ryan is as his mom explained that he was on the Autism Spectrum.
But what touched George's heart is how Ryan looked up to him like he was a superhero. After all, George got to drive a truck and not just any truck — he got to drive a Fed Ex truck. The next day George returned with a surprise. He brought Ryan more gifts from the Fed Ex company — a soccer ball, a shirt, and even a hat! The look on Ryan's face was priceless. It was a look of pure joy, happiness, and admiration!
Can we all just take a moment to thank God for George's heart that is so full of grace, kindness, and love? He is so much more than a delivery driver — he delivers compassion and grace!
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness," Galatians 5:22
