Goodness in Portage

Cathie Hamm

By Cathie Hamm

I believe in the goodness of people. I experienced an anonymous woman's goodness in Portage la Prairie at about 2:00PM on Saturday, September 15th in the Portage Canadian Tire parking lot. I had just bought a gift I was exited about and was in a rush to get home. I took the gift (and my other bags) out of my cart and put them in my trunk and promptly drove away. A couple of kilometers down the road I realized that I didn't have my purse (which contained my wallet and my cell phone). I stopped and checked my trunk and suddenly realized that I had left my purse in the cart in the busy Canadian Tire parking lot. I immediately trusted that the people of Portage are good and that when I returned to the store, my purse would be there. Sure enough...as soon as I walked up to Customer Service...there it was on the counter. A friendly man who was in line told me that a woman had just brought it in...saying that she found it in a cart in the parking lot. That wonderful woman did not leave her name...but I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for turning in my purse (with all contents in tact)! I promise to pay your random act of kindness forward! Thank you!
