Faith in humanity boosted

So yesterday, MrH was at our local hospital, in our local little town, Hexham, to see his surgeon and have X-rays to confirm that his foot is healing correctly.

The day before, he had spotted a lady on our local selling page, advertising some brand new, expensive brand, unused cotton yarn for sale, at a very reasonable price. So he contacted her and arranged to meet her at the hospital as she lives near it too.

We met and she asked what I had planned for it, so I told her all about Mary’s Snowflake Creations. I duly handed her the £30 and she handed me £10 back !! I was completely floored and tried to give it back (the yarn should’ve cost £99 so it was already an absolute bargain) but she was resolutely insistent and told me that she really wanted me to keep it as a donation towards my fundraising for The MS Society.

I still have a lump in my throat, thinking about it. What a lovely, generous gesture. It really does restore your faith in the inherent kindness and thoughtfulness of people.
