Thanks for Random Acts of Kind­ness sto­ries

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

READ­ING the daily news­pa­per for a week can get me down. School shoot­ings, ac­ci­dents, rob­beries, fires, floods and dis­as­ters of all kinds. The list goes on.

But when Satur­day’s pa­per ar­rives, I seek out the Random Acts of Kind­ness col­umn. It’s full of sto­ries with happy end­ing, thank yous for found and re­turned wal­lets, purses, spe­cial jew­elry pieces, help with a flat tire, paying it for­ward with cof­fee, snacks, lunches or gro­cery items. That list goes on, too.

The va­ri­ety of kind ges­tures re­minds me there is more good than bad in the world. The sto­ries make me smile and lighten my spir­its; I’m sure other read­ers feel it too.

A big thank you to all who share their per­sonal random acts of kind­ness ex­pe­ri­ences.
