Three thank yous and a sorry...

I was excited to take our three-year-old son to his first hockey game—the CIS championships sounded like the perfect chance to see great hockey and hang out with our middle child. The first thank you is for seeing my son and I in line and giving us two tickets (I believe your company had a section and these were intended for others who did not show). We were really enjoying the game (especially the Zambonis) and you were very kind as you engaged our son in conversation. Unfortunately, the popcorn+OJ combo did not sit well with my son and he ended up puking. In the middle of puke number two, I scooped him up and rushed him up the steps (we were basically rink-side) to the washroom. As soon as you had noticed what happened, both you and your partner ran to get paper towels and to notify the usher of the mess (thank you number two). As I was cleaning the puke off of both of us in the washroom, you saved me by bringing us our jackets (thank you number three). I thanked you, but can't express how much you helped. The sorry is for leaving a mess for your other guests. Random acts of kindness happen more often here—I hope I am doing my part and paying forward. Thanks. —Dad Humbled by Kindness of Stranger
