Random Act of Kindness

Random Act of Kindness

We live on a pretty special street in Wolfville, Alline Street. Neighbours are quick to introduce themselves and lend a helping hand. This was evidenced recently when we had a medical emergency in our family which required calling an ambulance. We had just experienced a significant snowfall and our driveway wasn’t cleared yet which meant the ambulance had to park on the street. As with every morning after a storm, neighbours rush from their houses to clear their driveways with snow blowers. While the ambulance attendants were inside our house, I looked outside to see our neighbours descend upon our driveway and they had it completely cleared in time for the stretcher to be loaded into the ambulance. While riding in the ambulance to the hospital, the driver exclaimed, “I wish I lived on your street”. His comment reinforced my feeling that living on a quiet street in a small town with great neighbours is the best place in the world.
