I felt a letter should be written about something that happened that reminded me about Christmas yesterday. I had gone into Tim Hortons on Lonsdale and 15th to get a coffee and bring it to my car. While drinking my coffee I noticed a man sitting on the ground, playing his guitar, with a tiny dog sitting in front of him with a blanket around the dog as it was quite cold.
While sitting in my car I noticed a lady coming down the street with her little white dog. She stopped at the little dog and bent down and took a little sweater off her dog and gave it to the man to put on his dog - if that didn't bring tears to my eyes. She spoke to the man and about 20 minutes later returned with two bags of groceries. Not believing what I was seeing, I got out of my car and approached the lady to ask her if she knew the man. She said no. I asked her her name. Being reluctant, she did say Jane-Ellen. This truly made my Christmas. Thank you Jane-Ellen for this.
