You shall go to the ball

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

ON a re­cent Sun­day af­ter­noon, I went shop­ping for a pair of dress san­dals to go with a gown that I’ll be wear­ing at my grand­daugh­ter’s up­com­ing wed­ding.

At the Nat­u­ral­izer Shoe Store in Gar­den City Shop­ping Cen­tre, I saw a lady try­ing on a pair of san­dals. I com­mented to her that they looked good on her feet. She thanked me and said that she’d prob­a­bly buy them.

I looked for an­other pair like hers, as I re­al­ized that they would go per­fectly with my dress. Un­for­tu­nately, there wasn’t an­other pair.

I asked the woman if she’d mind if I tried on hers, to check for fit, in case they had them at an­other store.

They fit per­fectly and the store clerk checked for me, but no other store had them in my size.

Then, the won­der­ful lady came up and handed me the san­dals, of­fer­ing to let me have them. I thanked her pro­fusely, paid and left with the per­fect footwear and a smile on my face and in my heart.

I don’t know that lady’s name, but I want ev­ery­one to know that there are kind and con­sid­er­ate peo­ple around us and that I was very lucky to en­counter one of them.
