You Said It, Dec. 23, 2012
A big thank you to the Christmas angel who, even though she had her two small sons with her, took a lot of time to help us (an elderly couple) pick out age-appropriate clothes for eight charity children. This mother demonstrated the Christmas spirit by her cheerful help and considerable thoughtfulness. She made our shopping for unknown youngsters a pleasure rather then a frustrating, time-consuming effort. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
To the gentleman who paid for our purchases at the Rimrock Walmart last Friday morning: Thank you! Your kindness and generosity will be known forever in our family as the Christmas miracle. Without going into details, our family was facing a very meager Christmas with five children. Bless you for helping us and securing gifts for the children.
Since the weather has been much colder, let’s all remember to be sure our pets have a nice, warm, soft bed to sleep in. They should be inside when it’s 30 degrees and colder. Some extra food is also necessary to help provide the energy to keep warm.
Thank you to the lovely family who paid for our breakfast at The Egg and I and acknowledged my husband’s World War II Navy service.
Help deliveries be more speedy and efficient: Make sure your house number is easy to read from the street, especially after dark. We “delivery elves” want your pizza to arrive hot, and those important packages to be on time for your holiday. Thanks.
So the same people who not long ago were doing everything they could to break up teacher unions and lower teachers’ standard of living now think they should carry guns and be our school security along with their other duties?
To the older gentleman who bought my groceries one afternoon at Albertsons: That random act of kindness and generosity was greatly appreciated. You have a warm heart and a good soul. May God bless you, sir.
The college football bowls are starting. This will go on until around Jan. 8. There are no less than 35 bowl games scheduled. A team does not even have to have a winning record to play in one these days. It used to be there were five major bowl games and you had to be a very good team to play. These watered-down bowls are a crying shame and it is all for the almighty buck. I won’t be watching except for the original bowl games.
Thank you to our wonderful neighbor, Ray, who went out in the freezing snowy morning and shoveled the driveways of his neighbors on Sol Lane. Thank you, Ray, from all of us.
I’d like to thank whoever the generously kind person is who shoveled the walks on 33 Road. You’re awesome.
Thank you, Powderhorn Mountain Resort. I had so much fun. I see the changes. You’re fun to watch.
A big, giant thank you to the person who turned in my wallet at Safeway on Horizon on Dec. 13. It’s so nice to know that there are still honest people. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Through the 26 years I have lived in Grand Junction, there have been many people who have assisted my husband and me. People smile and are quite helpful. We have lived in a number of places. This has been the very best.
I want to thank the gentleman who bought my daughter the balloon at the dollar store. It made mine and my husband’s day and my daughter was excited. Also, thank you to the dollar store employees you were considerate to my daughter.
