  • Breakfast treat

    2:00 PM

    MY husband and I were enjoying breakfast together with friends at Smitty’s Restaurant on Meadowood Drive. We hadn’t seen each other for some time and had much to talk about.

    When we went to pay for our meals, the cashier told us another couple had already paid our bill for us.

    Needless to say, we were more than surprised.

    Whoever you are, we want to thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.

    Once again, it’s wonderful to know such kind and generous folk are with us to make the world a brighter place.

  • ‘Amazing’ man helped after escalator fall

    01/28/2015 2:00 PM

    I had the misfortune of falling while going up an escalator while shopping with my granddaughter at Sears in St. Vital Centre.

    A very kind man who was behind us gave me the assistance I needed to get off the escalator safely. He even lifted me off the floor until I could stand up, which is difficult because I don’t have much strength in my legs because of the effects of muscular dystrophy.

    I am so thankful for this man, who was quick to react, and for others who expressed concern about me.

    As is often the case, I didn’t get his name, but I would like him to know how much I appreciated his help.

    He was simply amazing and knew just what to do.

    As I was saying that day, it is evident I can no longer handle escalators, so I will be taking elevators from now on.

  • Courtesy inspires couple to pay it forward

    01/27/2015 11:12 AM

    MY husband and I witnessed very generous acts of kindness by three people in one day.

    First, I was at the checkout counter at the Charleswood Safeway when I realized my wallet was missing.

    The customer behind me paid for my order, even though I protested, of course. I asked for her name so I could send her a cheque, but she would only say her name was Jan. Half an hour later, when it was cold and dark, my husband shut off his car and came back to find the battery was dead. CAA couldn’t come for two hours. A very kind woman offered to jump-start his car. Another young man approached and offered to attach the cables to the battery. The car started, through another random act of kindness.

    We had symphony tickets that night. We got there on time and had the opportunity to pay it forward when the donation bag was passed along.

    I hope these three people recognize themselves and know how grateful we are.
