Ran­dom acts of kind­ness

Child’s flower brought cheer

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

I had just re­turned home from vis­it­ing my daugh­ter and son-in­law, who live far away. I had a great visit with my daugh­ter, but miss her so ter­ri­bly much. The next day was my un­cle’s fu­neral, so I was not in a cheery mood. Just after lunch, I was in the pro­duce sec­tion at Safe­way when a very cute lit­tle girl ap­proached me. She was maybe three or four years old, hold­ing out a beau­ti­ful rose to me. She said it was for me. I asked her name, and I told her mine, shook her hand and thanked her very much. Then her mom came over and said Chloe loves to give flow­ers to peo­ple be­cause she likes them to have a happy day. I sure had to work very, very hard to stop my tears from flow­ing. Chloe, you have touched my heart very dearly. Thank you again for your great thought­ful­ness. Nearly a week later, my rose was still so beau­ti­ful.
