One of a kind lady
AN act of kindness happened to me recently.
I was at Riverton Shopping Centre buying my great grandson a birthday present for his first birthday.
He's a very happy baby who has been in hospital with a virus a few times.
I had picked out a toy dog who barked and made sounds that worked by sensor movement. I also had a couple of other items for him for him.
I thought the dog would be about $40, but reaching the check-out I asked the price before ringing it up only to find out it was $79.
I told the check-out assistant I would have to leave it as I could not stretch my pension that far.
I walked out with the other items and entered a shop opposite to look for other presents. Then I received a tap on my shoulder.
There was a lovely lady who is a complete stranger handing the dog to me, saying she had bought it for me as she wanted me to have it.
I do not know the lady, she left before I could get her name, as I was surprised by her kindness.
I would like her to know that the baby loves his little dog and gets so much joy from him.
A very big thank you to this lady for her kindness as my great grandson is still very sick.
