Thanks to my win­ter an­gel

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

I was on my way to an ap­point­ment in Win­nipeg. My car started to vi­brate and smell of burnt rub­ber.

As soon as I could, I pulled into a gas bar off Lin­den Woods Drive hop­ing to re­ceive some as­sis­tance with my flat tire — to no avail. I was left alone to try to re­move the bolts that kept my tire on so firmly.

The first three were easy; the other two felt im­pos­si­ble to turn.

As I strug­gled with the tire wrench in mi­nus -20 C weather, the tears of frus­tra­tion came rolling down my face. Then a voice from a stranger asked if he could give me a hand.

This kind, thought­ful, car­ing man helped take off my tire, and he placed my spare tire on for me. When I asked what I owed him, he looked at me and said, “You don’t. Merry Christ­mas!”

If you are the won­der­ful gen­tle­man that stopped at the Safe­way gas bar in Lin­den Woods on Dec. 12, thank you so very much for ex­tend­ing your hands to as­sist me in my time of de­spair. May God Bless you many, many times, You are my win­ter An­gel.

Thanks so very much.
