“Father knows best” isn’t just an old saying and classic comedy show. There’s usually a reason we should learn to trust Dear Old Dad when he gives advice.
Unfortunately for Brianna Razo, she had to learn that the hard way and it would’ve gotten her into trouble if she hadn’t had a guardian angel in uniform nearby. When the gas light in Brianna’s car went on, she could hear her father’s voice in her head telling her to pull over at the next service station and fill up, even though she knew she had about 33 miles to go before being completely on empty.
“I had done it numerous times in the past. And I was right! Made it home without any issues,” she wrote in a post on Facebook that has since gone viral. Yet Brianna knew she needed gas before work the next day and even gave herself some extra time to stop, but when she got to the first gas station, she finally realized that she should have paid attention to Dad’s years of experience.
Brianna forgot her credit card and quickly learned that ApplePay and manually inputting her card info was not going to work. She went to four different gas stations before having a near breakdown.
“Like the baby I am, I cried. I cried for this inconvenience, I cried for all of the ‘things’ that have plagued me over the course of the last few months. And then I prayed,” Brianna wrote on Facebook. “I prayed longer than I had time to, because I needed it. I needed comfort, I needed a way to get gas, I needed a miracle.”
When she opened her eyes, she saw Sedona Police Department Officer Ty Langmack and ran toward him asking for $5 with tears flowing from her eyes. What happened next made us shine with joy. As you can see in this heartwarming story, cops seem to get a bad rap these days, but we like to think Brianna wrote it best:
“Not all heroes wear capes, and not all angels have wings: Some wear a badge.”
