Two kind acts

  • Print

A couple of weeks ago, we were at the Manitoba Clinic trying to pay the meter when a gentleman came out of nowhere, asked if we needed change and before we could answer, offered three dollars with a smile and an invitation, "Take it."

Earlier in the year, we were headed west on the Yellowhead Highway, and as we often do when we take that route, we stopped for coffee at our favourite coffee shop, the Gladstone Bakery.

It was busy that day, and so it was that a Neepawa resident, in Gladstone for a day of volunteering as he explained, sat down with us for coffee.

We enjoyed a kind of "down-home" conversation about various things, and then it was time to go. When we went to pay our bill, lo and behold, much to our surprise, the Neepawa volunteer, who left a few minutes before us, had paid for our coffee.

To be the unexpected recipients of such surprising kindness is almost overwhelming, and we are especially appreciative of their gifts that once again highlight the goodness in our world.

Thanks so much to both of you.
