I love living in Montague. It is not only a nice place with views, stores, restaurants, art culture, a fitness centre, hospital, and schools, it is the beautiful people who live here.
I have a hip which has arthritis and requires me to use a cane. I can call it my own magic wand. At the post office and with a box to carry, I get two people wanting to carry it out, or the post office puts it out back closer to my car. At local stores, and I am carrying something, I can always get a helper to carry it out to the car.
I once had a flat tire at Superstore. A young woman had a charger and pumped up my tire. I recently had my car have an oil change at the high school. The automotive students were so polite and smiling. They did a good job with Mr. Somers also explaining the under parts to me. Thank you for the service we can all use.
Day care is available for seniors and with the new facility, they must be having fun with each other. Such kind and beautiful ladies are the health-care aides and make a difference in lives with their sunny smiles.
The most wonderful thing happened when I purchased some
Ice Melt at Lawson’s Pharmacy. The sales clerk did the sale at the counter without having to lift the bag, and she carried it out to the car. Not the end of the story.
I arrived home at my apartment on Main Street. I managed to boost the bag out and drag it across the road. All of a sudden, a Fed Ex van stopped in the street. The driver jumped out and carried the bag inside the front door and set it down. The van was idling in the street.
All the little events that take place every day in our lives are not always nice. We lose who we love by death. Our neighbors, family and even people you thought were your friends can inflict hurts that, well, hurt! My own experiences from strangers has been heartwarming. I hope other people are also benefiting from everyday kindness.
My friends and my “stranger” friends all contribute to a senior’s well-being and good health in Montague.
You know who you are and I love and salute you all.
