Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I knew from the start of the day that I was going to get stuck somehow and I guess should have prepared more. I almost made it all the way through the day and was on my way home when it happened. I took a turn way too slow to avoid sliding into a car and hit some snow. I was alone with a dead phone, no boots or gloves and a car stuck on the corner of Riverside and Drouillard. A good amount of people drove by me but a lady and three (I think?) men stopped to help. I yelled thank you out of my window while I was driving away and I hope you heard me. I really appreciated the help and so do my toes. 💕
I was driving home from work and just before the banwell/ ec row intersection (eastbound), I was hit by another vehicle (black SUV). They kept swerving side to side up banwell, managed to straighten out and then took off. This happened around 3pm. Just hoping that someone saw and was able to get the license plate.
I just wanna say thank you to the lady who helped me in the white Explorer. You notice that was struggling, trying to go uphill to the shell gas station on central. You got out of your car and pushed my car in this crazy cold weather. I hope you see this. That was so kind of you. I wish you nothing but the best this holiday. Much love!
The last few years have been anything but easy for a lot of people we all have been struggling with the cost of living everything is going up in price making it so hard just to survive not to mention covid happened and hurt a lot of small business. My personal story over the last few years have been anything but easy after coming home from Mexico because my family's life was in danger i was fined over 6000$ because of covid measures , my spouse at the time left me a month before our wedding leaving me a sudden single mom. I lost my business due to covid , then was in a car accident and rolled my car. My mother got sick stage 4 lung cancer no cure i immediately became her full-time care giver no business and no job i nearly lost my home care giving for mom sadly she passed away in June. The topper i enrolled in school hoping it would lead to a better career i could provide a better life for my daughter and i , I've worked very hard usually scoring 80 - 90% on all my tests and assignments. Last week i found out the school is having issues finding me placement so i will not be graduating with my class. I have completely hit rock bottom I've spent the last week angry and crying praying to god something has to give I'm not one to ask for help but this year i needed it more then anything!! At about 7pm last night on December 21st there was a knock at my door it was an older couple i have never met prior they hand me a turkey and all the fixings and said merry Christmas! When they left i hit the floor in tears! I just wanted to share my story because although life may seem hard and we struggle there is still good in our world and blessing come in all forms Merry Christmas!!
Recently received a newspaper called druthers in our mailbox spewing anti-Covid, anti-vaccine and anti-lgbtq+ rhetoric. Upon investigating this paper there is a website you can go to to have them send this newspaper to everyone in your neighbourhood. Not sure which one of my neighbours felt it necessary for everyone to receive this hate at our front doors but it's disgusting. Have you're own beliefs but don't go shoving them in my mailbox.
THANK YOU! SO MUCH! to the women who paid for the rest of my Lush items. You saved me a trip to the store and also gave me an opportunity to teach my daughter to do things without always getting something in return. You were amazing and didn't have to help me. I am usually the one always helping everyone else. It was nice to get it back. :)
Merry Christmas. I will contiune to pay it forward.
A special THANK YOU to a very special employee at Shoppers Drug Mart in Belle River. Maggie at the cosmetics counter!! You went out of your way to make me feel comfortable with my irritating request to do returns, re-buy and add to my purchase lastnight. Maggie you are a lovely gal and you went above and beyond helping me and my friend Jessica. Shoppers is lucky to have you! Amazing personality!
I really want to thank the customer who looked to be in his 40's long grey white beard with the black face mask on for giving me that $20.00 Thank you very much and if I don't see or hear from you again have a Merry Christmas
