Act of kindness appreciated

Thank you to a lady that came to my aid, Monday evening, approximately 4 p.m., outside the Dollar Tree.

While I was sitting on the damp low wall of the flower bed, she came to me with some newspaper to sit on while I was waiting for my ride.

She came over again and said what they need is a couple secured benches, under the protection of the store’s eaves. I agreed.

She came back over to me and said “God bless you”, and when she went back to her car, I said, “He just did”.
