Lady who bought my tea

To the lady in the blue Ford Focus on Monday afternoon. I stopped in the Tim Hortons parking lot on the Kingsway to let you get ahead of me in the drive thru line. Although I’m not always successful, that’s how I try to live my life, with courtesy and kindness. When I got to the window myself, the worker said “Happy New Year, the lady in front just paid for your tea”. Funny thing, for most of December, every time I went through TH drive thru lines, I paid for the person behind me, just to know I might have made someone’s day a bit better. On this day, I was feeling distraught after making the decision to let my 12 year old ailing dog cross the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday. Your gesture made me cry a lot more but they were tears of appreciation. You see, this dog of mine and I have been through hell and back together and this decision feels like it’s killing me now. On a day when the kindness of a stranger couldn’t have meant more, I thank you and I wish you much kindness in return. From a broken hearted dog mom, thank you, just thank you. Small things often have the biggest impact.
