They cared enough to stop

I live in Regina and I would like to applaud and thank the wonderful people who stopped to assist when I had an accident on Highway 59 heading north to Hillside Beach on Aug. 3 at 4 p.m.

I lost control of my vehicle and after a wild ride through the ditch and into a field, I found myself upside down, hanging by my seat belt.

The people driving directly behind me stopped immediately, as did others, and ran to my car and got me out. More travellers stopped when they saw the car sitting on its roof, one being a paramedic and another being a nurse.

Without the help of these great people, I would not have been able to get out of the vehicle.

My heartfelt thanks to all who helped me and to all who care enough to stop when a fellow human being is in distress.

Passing on good karma

I had dropped my hubby off at the doors of the Manitoba Clinic, and went into the parkade to find a parking spot.

After I had just parked the car and was placing the keys in my purse, a lady two stalls down came up to me and said, "Here, you might as well use my ticket. There's still an hour and a half left on it. I'll just back out and you take my spot!"

So, I thanked her and told her how nice that was of her, then got into my car and once she backed out, I pulled in.

This was so sweet of her! It really helped me out as I would have had to looked for an ATM before I could have paid for the parking. And my husband was waiting for me to join him in the doctor's office.

Not only did she pass on good karma to me, but her young child who was with her was being taught a very precious lesson on how to treat other people. Congrats to this generous lady.
