Thanks to the girl with big dreams

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - LIFE -

I was in Chap­ters at Polo Park look­ing for a jour­nal. One that caught my eye had “Faith, Hope, Love” writ­ten on its cover. Behind that jour­nal was an en­ve­lope from a girl cel­e­brat­ing her birth­day. She had left a Star­bucks gift card for the finder of the en­ve­lope as a birth­day gift to her­self. There was also a letter that said that if the finder of the en­ve­lope so wished, she could pay this ran­dom act of kind­ness for­ward — which I surely will do. In sign­ing off, she thanked me for the work and con­tri­bu­tions I make in the com­mu­nity. The girl with big dreams could not know how spe­cial re­ceiv­ing that letter was for me. It was a beau­ti­ful ges­ture. It brought tears to my eyes to think that I had for­got­ten I was once a girl with big dreams. Thanks to this girl... I think your dreams are com­ing true al­ready. As for me, I must be off to go re­mem­ber my dreams! I started re­mem­ber­ing them the mo­ment I re­ceived your letter and con­tem­plated them over a hot latte at Star­bucks.
