Pay it forward

I was grabbing a few groceries at fairways in Brentwood and an elderly man told me he had misplaced his cane in the store. I told him not to worry I'll go look up the isles for you. I couldn't find it so I told him I'd go get someone from the store to help him . While I waited in line one woman said she had heard me talking to him and hadn't noticed the cane either. As the cashier rings my groceries in I went to grab my wallet and it wasn't in my purse. I said I just live up the road I'll be right back in 5, I'm so sorry is that ok?
The woman who overheard me talking to the elderly man over heard this and walked over and said I'll pay for it. I said oh no it's ok I'll be back in 5. She insisted, said its only 20 dollars, let me help you. I have never been so overwhelmed and thankful. A big thank you to who bought my groceries. I would like to repay you if I can find you and I will definitely be paying this forward.

Thank you

Want to give a shout out to the woman in pink, running the Songhees trail this morning (Sunday)who noticed that I was feeling less than stellar at that point in my run and gave me a huge smile and high five. That little gesture helped me push another couple of km's. You Rock!!!

A shout out to the amazing staff at Cob's bakery in the Westshore. I went in to pick up an order of 2 dozen hotdog buns and the lady serving me asked if we were having an event. I said yes it was my daughters 11th birthday party. She let my daughter pick a complimentary scone of her choice and all the staff wished her happy birthday making her feel extremely special. Customers joined in and then offered to put their orders towards her schools dough raiser program. I frequent Cob's at least once a week and it's always a happy place when you walk in. Customer service is 100% every time and they do so much for the school community. Thank you Cob's Westshore... You've been spotted

Spotted : A few weeks ago I was walking with my dog on riverside and I noticed an older gentleman who was having trouble collecting papers that went flying around because of the wind. I helped him gather what I could and once we were done I walked over to him. I gave him what I had from what looked like very old letters. I asked him if he noticed anymore missing. I took a closer look and I noticed watery eyes. He said he accidently dropped his book that had all these letters in it, letters that him and his wife wrote each other throughout the years. I told him I would help him. Every letter had a number in the top right corner and he had a total of 195. He was missing page 17 and 77, so we started looking. A few others joined in after about 10 minutes of searching. At one point we almost had 15+ people looking for he last missing page 77. While looking he told me his wife had passed away 5 years ago and every now and then he pulls out these letters that they wrote to each other while he was away from her(before texting and emails). I broke down into tears just listening to him tell me the story. Suddenly we hear a scream from a distance. This middle age man was trying to run as fast as he could to us screaming "I FOUND IT" this old man was so anxious to see the last page to make sure it was the right one. I was so happy to see that page 77 was now in his hands again. I helped him count the papers one more time to make sure they were all there. To all those people who walked by and stopped to help, you are amazing. To that old man, I hope one day I find exactly what you found with your wife. It was so beautiful to sit and talk to him for that little while.

I just thought I would share this story, hoping it makes someone's day!
