RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS Angels in Stonewall earn their wings
Young nursing student shows us the way
WHAT a snowy, cold, long winter it has been for we oldies. After the two-day snowfall after Christmas, we were blown right in. My husband, who can’t shovel snow, was just pacing. He was going to get my brother-in-law’s tractor or find a snowblower. He went away for about an hour. When he came home the look on his face was such relief. “Someone came and shovelled us right out.” It was our neighbours Don, Monica, Little Chloe and Kaiden. They worked so hard. This was not the first time they’ve done it. Many times we’d come home and the snow was cleared — by shovel. And then our brother-in-law comes to town with his tractor and cleans out the heavy stuff. Lyle and Nancy live one mile out of Stonewall. Ed and I just cannot believe the kindness of these angels. We don’t call to ask for help. They are just there. We feel so blessed. One day we will return the favour, I hope! IT was very cold and windy and I had an eye-doctor appointment in Island Lakes. This was a very unfamiliar part of the city to me, so my friend Cathy came with me on the bus. We were on the No. 75 bus and very nervous about where we would get off, when the young lady sitting next to me looked at the address and said we would be getting off at the same stop as she would. She showed us how far we would have to walk, especially across Bishop Grandin Boulevard, at 4:45 p.m. Cathy and I made it to our destination with great difficulty and anxiety. We were grateful to the young woman for showing us Thank you very much, Blake and Ryan. From the hopeless Red River student, how to get to the office, as we would not have found it without her guidance. When I came out of the doctor’s office, I noticed a young girl talking to Cathy. She looked just like the young girl on the bus and sure enough, it was! She had gone home and told her mother how worried she was about the two older women she had met on the bus. Then she got the car and came looking for us. She found us just in time and insisted on driving us home, which was practically across town in rush hour. We were overwhelmed by her kindness. She is a second-year nursing student at the U of M. We think her name is Kaelin. We are very grateful to Kaelin. The nursing profession is blessed to have this young woman. We will always remember her kindness. of the liquor commission, came to my rescue and, while I minded his shopping, he exchanged my damaged purchases. Thank to the commission for replacing my purchases — free of charge. I want Jerry to know his help and thoughtfulness was very much appreciated. A toast to Jerry and the Commission!
