My faith is re­stored in good­ness of peo­ple

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

I was at the West­wood Clinic and had just re­ceived a rather large bill for out-of-pocket med­i­cal test­ing and forms. For­tu­nately, I had the money; un­for­tu­nately, the of­fice takes cash only and could not pro­vide change. My friend and I were in the wait­ing room dig­ging through our pock­ets and wal­lets for ex­act change, count­ing quar­ters and dimes, all the while I was ex­press­ing my frus­tra­tion. A few min­utes later, as I was sit­ting alone wait­ing for my pa­pers to be re­turned to me, a brunette lady ap­proached me with some cash in hand. She had over­heard us and said she felt bad know­ing some­one might be hav­ing trou­ble pay­ing for med­i­cal costs. I ex­plained to her that we had in fact man­aged to cover it and were ac­tu­ally just at­tempt­ing to come up with ex­act change. Al­though I did not need her gra­cious of­fer, I thanked her for her kind­ness, and now I am writ­ing this to thank her again. To the lady at the West­wood Clinic, please know that your of­fer of kind­ness and help to a com­plete stranger did not go un­no­ticed or ap­pre­ci­ated. It is peo­ple like you who re­store my faith in the good­ness of peo­ple.
