Letter: A random act of kindness


On Jan. 2, I dropped my husband off at the doctor’s office on Wells Street and had to rush home as we had forgotten his labs for blood work.

We had a busy day ahead trying to squeeze in three doctors’ appointments for my husband before the snowstorm hit. On my way into my car, a woman greeted me with a warm smile and presented me with a package and said she would like to me to have it.

It was a warm loaf of bread. I asked her why she would give this to me, a total stranger. She merely responded with, “Why not?” and got back in her car and drove off.

My Thank You to this woman for her gift. It brightened my day. What a wonderful way to start the New Year!
