‘I was the lucky one’

  • Print

I just want to send a big thank-you to a very kind gentleman.

I was out shoveling my driveway, and I knew I would be there for hours. Feeling a little discouraged, I stopped for a few moments to look around. I saw this gentleman going down my street in a front-end loader used to clear snow.

I thought someone is going to be lucky today. I watched him go right by my house and just stood for a few moments longer. He backed up and positioned himself in front of my driveway. I just looked at him for a few seconds, then he started to clear out my driveway.

I was in shock. I waited and when he finished, I was going to ask if he wanted a coffee or a drink, but he just waved and kept going down the street.

I was the lucky one that day. There are still kind people out there. He knows who he is, and I appreciate his generous act of kindness.
