Thank you to Marcell's Collission for your awesome generosity and spirit of giving. I was so excited it was pay day and on my lunch from work ran to get this awesome holiday find I saw two days before. I went back to work so excit edto find just what my son asked for.An email gets sent out my liscence # has a flat tire. I had plans to finsh my shopping after work.I called CAA and then the garage (Marcels) across the street. He said no dont wait for CAA I will send someone to put air in your tire and drive it over. In an hour got a call it would be in my work parking lot and the keys dropped off. He replaced a leaky valve. I asked what I owed him and he said nothing. The thing he didnt know was I am a single mom with two teenage boys who just had to sell my house and move to an apartment. Been struggling financially and can barely give my kids Christmas. I was so afraid of the cost to fix my tire and if I had damaged the rim. His kindness meant so much to me that day. I am so thankful for the people in our city who are thinking of others and paying it forward! I stopped by today and anonomously gave him a Timmys card.
Merry Christmas Everyone! I can really feel the spirit in the city this year!
It's important to remember that not everyone is surrounded by large wonderful families. Some of us have problems during the holidays and sometimes are overcome with great sadness when we remember the loved ones who are not with us. And, many people have no one to spend these times with and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring thoughts and loving prayer right now. Just doing a small good deed for someone Especially during the holidays and showing someone you care could make a world of a difference. Merry Christmas Windsor and please Be kind to one another xo
My mother is going through tough times right now which has Children's Aid Society involved. But they went out of their way to give her and my youngest brother gifts for Christmas. It included gift cards for grocery stores, toys, books and a whole bunch of other things. It melted my heart to know that they took the time and effort to do such a generous thing. Because of their kind act and for helping my mom out, I'm giving back by donating Jaydens old toys and clothes to other kids in need.
Spotted : To the woman at Zehers on Manning Road.
At around 5pm this evening you made my whole Christmas. I was having a day where I was worried about having enough money to do exactly what I would need. I've been sinking my money into my mother and her needs and paying it forward for a while now.
I was at the cashier, oblivious to the amount on the register, that I would be required to remove some items to stay in my budget. Just as the cashier was removing them, you offered to pay the difference. I told you I couldn't let you do that, but you did it anyways.
I moved ahead and watched you pay for the difference. I waited to hug you and began to sob uncontrollably as I thanked you. You hugged me, kissed me on my cheek and told me you once had two young kids and knew what it was like to be in my shoes.
I've always been the giver, but I had no idea how over powering it was to be on the receiving end. Your generosity has made my whole Christmas. And with the speechless words I could not seem to find in that very moment, I realized I had forgotten to get your name.
My body is aching, my eyes are tired, but my heart is filled with the warmth of Christmas miracles. It's because of you that I have sobbed happy tears for over 2 hours.
Thank you generous woman. You made my whole Christmas. I only wish I knew who you were so I could repay the generosity you have given me.
Sincerely the grateful mother of two.
Every day I go on facebook and read so many posts about paying it forward and the kindness and generous hearts of people in our community, and I am blown away at how wonderful many people can be, strangers at that!
Spotted : Tonight I actually experienced what I have been reading everyday. I took my 4 year old son out on a mommy and son date, we went to his favorite restaurant- Maria's in Amherstburg. I was so proud of my little boy, such good manners and so well behaved. We ate our dinners, and a kind gentleman that sat next to us with his family made small talk with my son, which was really nice. We finished eating, and the waitress came back a few minutes later and said our bill had been taken care of. I was in shock, and was nearly brought to tears. I cannot say that that gentleman paid our bill, but I think he did. I went to the cashier, and said I wanted to pay another couple's bill,she laughed and said wow, paying it forward fast eh? I smiled and said, how can I not, this has really made my night, and has put me in the Christmas spirit. So to the person ( kind gentleman I think), thank you, your generosity has lifted my Christmas spirit, and made me realize there are wonderful people all around. Merry Christmas,
The delighted mom and son
Please help me find this. My house was broken into and the contents of my jewelery box was taken. Along with my mothers own engagement ring and a multitude of other sentimental things was this very unique ring which my husband bought me on our honeymoon. It's diamonds and sapphires of different colours in a swirl like setting. Please keep an eye out, and if you know of it's whereabouts contact the Windsor police. Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas.
I'm looking for everyone's help.....my sisters house was broken into and her jewellery box was cleaned out....everything is gone including a couple of heirlooms. As you can imagine she is devastated....days before Christmas.
The one picture I was able to dig up of those missing items is this very unique white gold, diamond and multi coloured sapphire spiral ring.
If you see this ring....know where it is....know who has it....please post/ message me... Reward offered!
I would love to be able to find it, wrap it up and hand it to her as a gift for Christmas.
