Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I have renewed faith in the season. I wanted to make a difference in my neighbours Christmas. They have been through a lot lately, Cancer, not working, single income cut dramatically. They have two children 5 and 8. I see them everyday and wanted to put a sparkle in their eye by gathering up donations of food and money. They do not know this is happening but I have had a great response from my family and friends. I cannot remember the last time I have felt so overjoyed. I always give to charities, but what a difference when you know the recipients. I will be presenting them with boxes of food and a good amount of money. I cannot wait to see their faces. The kids have been so sad and worried that I just wanted to make sure they had a good Christmas. Thanks to all who gave so generously...you truly are the spirit of Christmas.
My father has been doing lunch for my three children for years. He is now down to only one left, she is in grade 8 now. So this is his last year. This is what she posted on her FB page today:
As my Grandpa and me listen to the radio at lunch, we hear that the subject is people winning the lottery. They ask people to call in, and say what the best thing they ever won was. My grandpa says to me "The best thing I ever won was being able to make lunch for my grandchildren". Love you Pup? xoxo?
Signed, a grateful daughter!

I was @costco with my mom (Brenda Morin), this afternoon between 3 and 4 pm and spotted a lady that I've never even met before purchase my mom's items for her. It wasn't a lot but the fact that a totall stranger went out of their way to do such a nice thing for my. Mom will not go un noticed. My mom was nearly brought to tears by this kind gesture, and promisses to pay it forward at some point. It just goes to show that we here in the city have big hearts and will do most anything to. Put a smile on ones face.
To the man working at TD bank in devonshire mall on Friday with the pink shirt, THANK YOU for waiving my money order fee. That $7.50 you waived will be passed on to someone who needs it I promise.
To the young woman in line at freshco on tecumseh and mcdougall buying a large amount of bake goods, saying during the transaction it was for the homeless shelter. It was very nice to see a younger adult donating to the society. Way to go
