LETTERS: Act of kindness

It is amazing how a small act of kindness can totally change someone’s day.

On Dec. 22, I was waiting in the drive thru line at Tim Horton’s next to the local Walmart to receive my order of a muffin and doughnut.

When I got to the window to pay, the girl informed me that the lady ahead of me had already paid for my order. After getting over the initial shock, I looked up, but the vehicle had already left.

So if you are someone I know, a complete stranger, or hopefully a secret admirer, thank you so much for the kind gesture. I was not in the best of moods when I entered the lineup because of impending minor surgery, but I was certainly in a good mood when I left that lineup.

It is amazing how a small act of kindness can totally change someone’s day. God bless you and Merry Christmas.
