A stranger’s act of kindness
There are still great people who walk this Earth.
On Aug. 1, I was at the China Grove Food Lion with my two little girls. I was about to pay for our food, but my card was declined because there wasn’t enough money in my account. I said OK and had started to put back the food when a lady stepped up and said, “Can I pay for it?”
I said, “No, we will be OK.”
She said, “It’s OK. I’ll pay for it” and swiped her card through the machine.
I was in tears. I couldn’t say anything. I just waved and left. I cried all the way home.
I don’t know your name. I might not ever see you again.
I hope you read this letter. I would like to repay you. I called the Food Lion, but they could not give me your name.
Please, if you read this, call me (704-239-9947) so I can give you the money back.
I will never forget what you did for me. I want to say “thank you,” but a million thanks would never be enough.

Help in emergency
On Aug. 2, I was walking across the street to the parking deck from Rowan Regional Medical Center, and I fell in the street. Just as I fell, a young man who was walking his dog came to my aid. I would like to thank this young man for being so helpful. Thanks to all who helped after I was taken into the emergency room. Special thanks to Dr. Scott Chamberlin. God bless each one for their kindness to me.

Honesty is appreciated
To the very nice person who returned my check several weeks ago, thank you and God bless you. It is not often these days you find an honest person who will take the time to help a person out.
