I’ll never for­get my Li’l An­gels

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

MY hus­band and I went out for a cof­fee at the St. Vi­tal Cen­tre one Satur­day af­ter­noon. I was hav­ing kind of a hard time.

Th­ese two teenage girls came up to me and said, “We think you are hav­ing a hard day and so we bought you this so that you can be hap­pier.” I looked down at the ta­ble and she put a Tim Hor­ton’s card down. I just welled up and could hardly say much, but I got out, “Thank you, thank you.”

It was a gift card for $3, and they wrote on it, “Keep smil­ing and have an amaz­ing day,” and they had drawn a happy face.

My hus­band told them that I have MS and some days I just have a hard time.

If all kids were raised to be like th­ese two girls, the world would be a bet­ter place.

I will never for­get them, who­ever they are.

I call them my Li’l An­gels.
