Will surely pay it for­ward

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

I was in line at the St. Vi­tal Square Shop­pers Drug Mart just be­fore Christ­mas, count­ing out my last $10 in loonies and toonies, when I dropped one of the coins and it rolled un­der a small, im­mov­able dis­play rack.

As I am vis­ually im­paired and thus un­able to see ex­actly where it went, I mut­tered aloud to no one in par­tic­u­lar that I needed the coin to pay for my items, where­upon the lovely lady be­hind me got down on her hands and knees and tried to lo­cate and re­trieve my run­away loonie.

I thanked her for her ef­forts, at which time it was my turn at the cashier. As I was count­ing out my change to pay for my jug of milk and stamps, this lady in­sisted on paying for my milk along with her own items. I was so sur­prised and flus­tered I don’t re­mem­ber if I prop­erly thanked her.

I hope this let­ter will let her know how very much I ap­pre­ci­ated her kind­ness and gen­eros­ity, and that I will be sure to pay it for­ward.
