You Said It, Nov. 25, 2012
In honor of the season of thanksgiving, this week’s column has a special theme of gratitude.
To the couple at Walmart on Black Friday, I just want to say thank you so much for buying me an iPad 2 just so my husband and I can stay in touch while he is in Afghanistan, and then on top of that the $75 gift card. You touched me in a way I just can’t express. Thank you, you were my God-send.
A big thanks to the person who picked up my credit card at the 25 Road Sinclair station and turned it into the store cashier. I’m so glad that I live here.
I’m thankful the elections are over. I was down to my last Xanax.
I’m thankful for my business, my clients, my pets and the Marillac Clinic — not necessarily in that order.
My heartfelt thanks to Dennis, manager of Big O Tires in Delta. His speedy service and generosity will never be forgotten. God bless you for the good you show others.
I want to thank the couple from Palisade who paid for all of my groceries at Albertsons Tuesday on the 20th. I would also like to tell them I will pass it forward any way I can.
This note is to thank the two unknown men that appeared from the crowd watching the Veterans Day parade and not just helped but actually changed a flat tire on the Fleet Reserve Association Branch/Unit 244 Float. Whoever you are, you were a God-send and we all appreciated your help. May God bless you both and we hope that you have a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.
I would like to extend a most gracious thank you to the ladies who risked their own safety by crossing the 32 Road bridge to assist me when my truck broke down on a dangerous road at a dangerous time of day. How ironic that these ladies came to my assistance, yet I was ignored by two different passing sheriff’s officers in the same five minutes. It is no small wonder that the motto “To Serve and Protect” is often met with cynicism by the masses. Thank you again ladies, your assistance is forever appreciated.
I am thankful for all the wonderful doctors we have in the valley. The older we get, the more I like living in the valley, where we get the best medical attention available. Thanks to all of you and God bless you.
I’m thankful marijuana is legal so they can now do studies and find a cure for cancer. One study found that it killed cancer cells in mice.
Thanks to the “powers that be” that constructed the 29 Road bridge and overpass and the Riverside Parkway. Moving back to Grand Junction, it is a very pleasant surprise. We have noticed that at least four properties between the bridge and overpass have been cleaned up. It has to make people take more pride in their properties.
