After shopping at Costco, I headed to my car with a loaded cart, my purse in the bottom rack.
I unloaded my purchases into the trunk, but just as I was leaving the parking lot, I realized I didn’t have my purse with me.
I circled back to the cart-return site, but to my dismay, the purse was no longer there.
I raced into customer service, but was told that there had not been any purses turned in.
As I was leaving the store, obviously upset, one of the wonderful greeters came up to me and asked if I had left my purse in a cart. He told me that a purse had just been turned in and that they had it with them in a cupboard at the entrance.
I could not believe it. When I asked if this wonderful person had left their name, I was told that they had not.
To that angel I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. It certainly re-affirms my faith that there are still honest, trustworthy people out there.

After purchasing my Christmas cheer supply at River and Osborne on a bitter cold, slippery day, I fell on my way to the car and smashed some of my purchases.
A man called Jerry, a former employee of the liquor commission, came to my rescue and, while I minded his shopping, he exchanged my damaged purchases.
Thanks to the commission for replacing my purchases — free of charge.
I want Jerry to know his help and thoughtfulness was very much appreciated.
A toast to Jerry and the Commission!

My son and I went to a Jets game at the MTS Centre on New Year’s Eve. When we came out of the arena, there wasn’t a cab in sight.
However, as it was a very, very cold night, I was not too surprised.
There were a lot of transit buses, and I’d like to give the drivers a bouquet, as a lot of them were letting people onto their buses just to get warm.
I use the bus a lot and I’m finding most bus drivers are very courteous.
Congratulations to Winnipeg Transit drivers.

I was rushing to go to a funeral when I got stuck in a snowbank on Smithfield Avenue and Jones Street by a church. I tried to get out by myself but couldn’t.
A car drove by and saw my situation and the people in it tried to help me.
I got their names: Sheldon and Maurine.
We still couldn’t move. A Leon’s furniture truck came along and two young men jumped out and helped got my car out. I made it in time to where I was heading.
Thanks to these four young people.
