It seems there are more letters of complaint than of praise. So I’d like to remind the readers that there are a lot of wonderful people in Abbotsford, given to “random acts of kindness.”
I experience them most often when I’m shopping. Being very obviously handicapped, I find it very interesting to see how many people, young and old, customers and staff, are cheerfully willing to help, when asked, and even to just offer – without being asked – to help.
This ranges from an elderly gentleman looking for a jar of jam I wanted, and couldn’t find; to a young woman emptying my scooter basket at the checkout; to a taxi driver picking up the step stools my driver uses so I can get into her truck (that she forgot to pick up) and delivered them to my apartment.
I’ve lived in a lot of cities, but I can honestly say I appreciate living here in Abby more than anywhere else.
