I HAVE worked at Mercedes-Benz Winnipeg as a receptionist for two years. Recently, I gave my resignation because I am going to back to school in September.

Brian Lowes, on behalf of Mercedes-Benz, gave me a parting gift of a laptop for school. This gesture of kindness will help me so much, because the money I was to use for buying my laptop will go to my tuition instead.

Acts of kindness happen everywhere. I am very lucky I worked somewhere full of goodwill and camaraderie.

I thought of writing them a card, baking a cake, even knitting a sweater to show how much their gesture of kindness affected me. But I realized cards fade, cakes are eaten, and sweaters unravel.

Sharing with your readers how much care and appreciation I feel for Mercedes-Benz hopefully will not fade, be eaten or unravel.

Instead, I hope it resonates through time.
