Letter to the Editor

Grateful for act of kindness

Monday, February 21, 2011

To the Editor:

This weekend at church, we heard the gospel about loving thy neighbor.

It was the perfect story to go with what a woman whom I have never met did for me on Saturday.

I was coming out of Aldi's and asked this woman where she got her jacket.

I told her the one I had, like hers, had been taken and I was having trouble finding another one like it.

She totally surprised me when she took hers off right then and said, "Take this one."

I told her I couldn't, but she insisted it was a gift.

We've been hearing lately about "Random Acts of Kindness." I would say this definitely counts.

I would love to thank her.

So I hope she reads this.

Thank you so much for making my day and for being such a wonderful example for my boys and the rest of us that afternoon.

Laura Thompson,
