  • Gift of goodies

    10/24/2014 2:00 PM

    I was walking down my street from my car to my apartment one evening when a lady came up behind me walking her adorable French bulldog.

    I said, "So cute."

    She kept walking, then I said, "The dog is cute, I meant."

    We both laughed, and we talked for a bit as we walked. We parted ways, and I walked to my apartment.

    Then she called out, "Hey," handed me a shopping bag full of chocolate bars, and said, "Random acts of kindness."

    I thanked her and shared my story — and some of the chocolate — with my roommates.

    The next day I brought the chocolate bars to work to share with my coworkers. I told them the story and to pay it forward.

    Thank you so much. You made so many people’s day.

  • Coupons from shopper cut sister’s bill in half

    10/23/2014 2:00 PM

    I was accompanying my sister, Arlene, as she shopped at Pennington’s.

    When she was paying for her purchases, the cashier asked my sister whether she had any coupons, and she did have one.

    Another customer overheard us and offered my sister some coupons she would not be using for that day’s purchase.

    When all was said and done, my sister got all her purchases for half-price. Wow.

    Needless to say, we were delighted.

    This was a godsend, especially as my sister and family have been through a rough time with severe medical issues.

    Thanks again to the lady who was so generous.

  • A big help after hip surgery

    10/22/2014 2:00 PM

    I am legally blind and take Vital Transit every Monday morning to do my grocery shopping.

    The driver is so helpful, but recently he went beyond the call of duty. I want to thank him for his kindness and compassion.

    Recently, I fell and ended up in the hospital with a fractured hip. Robert became very concerned that I had missed several of my appointments. Once I arrived home, he knocked on my door to find out what had happened to me. When I told him about the problem with my hip, he volunteered to grocery shop for me while I healed from surgery.

    I can’t thank him enough for his thoughtfulness and genuine concern for me. It is so comforting to know he looks out for me and, I am sure, all his other customers.

  • VIP doctor truly cares

    10/21/2014 2:00 PM

    WE had to rush our mom, Gloria, to the emergency room at Concordia Hospital in July.

    Dr. Larry Reynolds was the attending physician. Not only did he calm her worries, he also gave us his pager number and told our family we could call him any time with questions.

    Since that time, our mom has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently receiving chemo treatments at St. Boniface Hospital. During her last treatment, Dr. Reynolds took time to visit, even though Mom is not his patient.

    It’s so great to have met a doctor who really cares. He teases my mom and calls her a VIP patient. We think he is a VIP doc! Thank you very much, Dr. Reynolds.
