Valentine’s Day is a very special day in itself. It is a day in which one gives and shows thanks for the love one has for someone important in their life.
This Valentine’s Day I recalled the love I had, but I have lost. To me, a day of emotions and so you try to find a way to fill it with some kind of joy. I decided to treat myself to a heart-shaped pizza at Boston Pizza St. Albert Trail, close to where I live. I wanted to be amongst people and what an evening it turned out to be.
There were so many people of the same thought as I. The wait for a table was hours, and for food as well. I did not mind that because there were people all around me. Families and friends gathered – all smiles, talking, laughing and enjoying the moment together and I was a part of them all.
Sitting alone in the booth, I was so deep in thought of my life, and my mind was so preoccupied. I want to write the waiter. The young server was very apologetic for the wait of table and food. He provided an excellent service to me. So, my many compliments to him and thank you; and to Boston Pizza, to all that they had to serve.
The most important part of my story that had greatly moved me is – there are angels all around one and when one least expects, they appear and take note that you are alone, and offer a gift to you for this Valentine’s Day – a gift so precious, kind and thoughtful – showing you need uplifting and this is what I will just do.
I am referring not to angels, but to a very fine gentleman with a genuine heart who paid for my entire meal.
You truly deserve a most sincere, warm, thank-you for this act of goodness that you provided for me.
I was very moved at the time and did not say thank you to be extended to you at the pizza place.
When I came home, I did call to Boston Pizza so they may extend this to you – but I wanted to go the extra mile and write my thank-you into the local paper – hoping that you will read it, and others.
May the deed, the act of kindness be returned to you by tenfold – you have given me a memorable Valentine’s Day.
Thank you, God bless you!
P.S. It is important to say “Thank You” for what you receive.
