Thank you to the woman who helped us

I left an abusive relationship 2 years ago and had filed for an emergency protection order with the court then went into hiding with my child. Although I worked full time, due to the timing, I didn’t have much for money.

A week later, I went to a Walmart on the south side to avoid being seen by any one we would have known. I loaded the grocery cart with fresh food and kept my head down, hat pulled over my head, jacket hiked to cover my face.

While I was in line, a woman started to chat with me. Inquiring about the spaghetti squash, how to cook it and prepare it. Although I didn’t want to talk and was terrified, she kept on chatting. I just got paid and was capable of doing so at the cashier. After the girl at the till was done scanning, she told me the total. $150.00 plus change. The woman in line that was talking to me about the squash, gently nudged me aside and said “I’ve got this.” I stood there stunned for what felt minutes, spoke back and said “I’m okay, I can do this. She kept on insisting. I cried in her arms, said thank you and left.

I still feel that I should have gotten her name to repay her. Rather, I’ve paid it forward and hope she knows this.

    Go kick rocks Nathan Higgers… with all the hate in the world right now, storys like this are needed so are people like the woman in the line. If you dont have nothing compassionate to say, keep trolling in Calgary pages.

    • yah… while in line at the cashier.. going to steal it.. doubtful. How about take it for what this is.. someone reaching out to say thank you and pay it forward in any possible way.
