Challenges in life pose hardship but inspire a lot of amazing things to happen.
Sometimes the community steps up to give a hand to seniors experiencing a difficult time. During the recent blizzard, my sister Carol and I were struggling to endure and things seemed bleak. None of our staff were able to reach us.
And then one of our caregivers, being concerned for our well-being, called the North Saanich Fire Department. In no time at all, there was a knock at our door and three handsome firemen appeared. “We came to see if we could help you,” they said.
They immediately cleared our driveway, making our exit accessible. They filled our kettle, opened some canned food which we’d been struggling to do, and assisted with our little service dog.
We chatted and then they left Carolwood Manor, filled with joy and happiness, and we were reassured that people cared about us.
It seems like thank you is not enough, but two grateful ladies will never forget these acts of kindness at a very dark time.
