Daily Inspiration: The San Diego Highwayman

For 50  years, a man known as the “San Diego Highwayman”, Tomas Weller, has been driving the highways around Sad Diego looking for stranded people to help.

When he was 16, he ended up stranded in a ditch during a blizzard, when a good samaritan stopped and helped him, asking only that he “pay it forward” one day. Ever since, Mr. Weller has done that, helping thousands of stranded motorists. He gives them a business card that says “You don’t owe me anything. I’ve been there too. Someone once helped me out, just the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here’s what you do: don’t let the chain of love end with you.”

Here is his story…

After his beloved rescue car Beulah, was ruined in 2011, some grateful citizens put her back together again.

Here is that story.

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
