Kind col­leagues or­ga­nized baby shower

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

I WAS a young high school stu­dent when I got preg­nant with my first child. I quit school and got a job to save up money for my baby. The job was an in­tern­ship. The people I worked with were ex­tremely kind and funny. They or­ga­nized a baby shower for me at the of­fice and brought food and gifts. It was great, and I loved that some of the things were home­made. To this day, I still have the home­made things be­cause they are so sen­ti­men­tal to me. I learned you don’t have to know people as well as child­hood friends to lend a help­ing hand. There are good people out there who just want to help some­one in need. Do­ing nice things for people, whether small or large, can change their out­look on life. It helped me to ap­pre­ci­ate help from oth­ers when I used to hate it.
