Opinion

This weeks showering of hugs and slugss

Slugs. To the driver that ran into my grey car in front of Nelson’s Save-On store shortly after nine in the morning of Christmas Eve and took off without leaving anything accepting responsibility for the damage they did. And more slugs to the people that saw it happen and condoned that driver’s actions by saying nothing. All it would have taken is a note on the windshield or a call to the police.

 

HUGS. Many hugs to the young lady that turned in a purse to Mark’s Work Wearhouse on January 5. It is so nice to know that honesty is still alive and well.  Thank you very much and please know how much you and your actions are appreciated.      - Grateful

 

Slugs. To all those responsible for defacing our Rosemont cul-de-sac. Thanks so much for whacking a proud and significant cedar tree to plant a pole to feed a duplex where a glade used to be. Who needed all that history and habitat and balance and character anyway?

 

Hugs. To the nurses, anesthesiologist, and gynecologist at the Nelson hospital for making my first minor operation not so scary and making me feel at home, I really appreciate all your hard work :) - Thankful teen

 

Hugs. To Kootenay Co-Op, Save-On-Foods, Ellison’s Market and Canada Safeway for their generous donations to the Nelson Reflections Synchronized Swim Club’s bath bomb fundraiser.  We made $415 profit! Thank you.

 

HUGS. To the angel who continues to provide my mother with friendship, generosity and kindness. Not sure what we would do without your support and unselfish gift of your time.
