Hi to all of you wonderful people reading ~The Seeker~, the most “POSITIVE PAPER” in Cornwall and the S.D. & G. areas this week. I have to tell you that I am feeling a lot better this week. I am still coughing and I am still low on energy. But as the days and nights go by I am getting to feel like my “old” self again. YAAY!!! My Goodness! Mother Nature has been playing around with the temperatures dials…There have been so many “Snow Days” this year..Tis fun and good for all of the kiddies, but not so good for the many parents that have to make alternative arrangements for their school-age children. My heart goes out to you parents and I feel for you all. I want to give a BIG THANKS to the many caregivers and babysitters that have stepped up to the plate to help out these parents in their time of need.
Tip of the Week: To Be Or Not To Be Happy…I want to *WISH* everyone Happiness…Absolutely EVERYONE!!! No Exceptions!!! Good people and Bad people, Kind people and the Mean people. People of every Colour and Religion. Even the people with No Religion at all. Poor people and Rich people. People I Like andto the people I Dislike. Even the Angry and Hateful people…They especially need happiness in their lives. (Don’t You Agree???) because If Everyone Was HAPPY… I Think That No One Would Want To Hurt OR Be Sad Any Longer!!! Just Sayin’
Item of the Week: Well, Well, Well, Here is my Item of the Week. You see my Johnny brought me to ~Value Village~ to help cheer me up after being sick for so long, (nearly 3 weeks.) He found me this pair of black and grey faux-fur, tie- up boots for only $25.00. They were a bit more pricier then what I usually would pay for a pair of boots from ~VV~. They were after all “Brand New”!!! Please go and check this and the many other thrift stores here in Cornwall. They are non-profit organizations that help out those who are less fortunate then ourselves. You too, can and will find some unique treasures of your very own.
There is another non-profit organization here in Cornwall and it is called, ~Cornwall People Helping Cornwall People~ run by a friendly and caring person, Karen Muise and her partner, Ken. This group is designed to help those who need immediate help. This is accomplished with the proceeds of “sale items” that have been donated by other caring people in our community. Seventy five per cent of the proceeds will go to help those people in need. People do need a boost from time to time…this will not be a LIFE TIME THING… They are there to help those who need immediate help. The other twenty-five percent goes towards their (Karen & Ken’s) time, energy and gas that it takes to do these kind gestures. No one will ever be given CASH, only help in the items, and or bills that they need help with. People are asked to donate an item or items so that ~CPHCP~ can continue to help those in need and to help maintain their goal. One Good Deed Deserves Another … That is why I am mentioning this group this week. You see I am an avid purchaser of many treasures from Karen, and I wanted to give her something back in return for all of the lovely things I have bought from her group over the past year. Please Check ~CPHCP~ out on Facebook to see if there are any treasures that you may like…or if you have any items to donate yourselves. Thank you kindly, in advance.
Don’t forget this Saturday at the Vu Nightspot, Misty Mac will be putting on another fun Drag Show. Then on Sunday, be sure to attend ~Cornwall’s International Women’s Day Show~ at the ~Civic Complex~ beginning at 10 a.m. It looks like it will be THE EVENT of the year for all women in our area. Bring along a friend, neighbor, or even your significant other, as men are also allowed entry. I look forward to seeing you there. Now What To Wear? What To Wear??? Family News: My youngest son, Marcus’ birthday was on Sunday February 28th. He turned 24!!! I can hardly believe that my youngest child is this age. Oh, Where have all of the years gone??? Where has the time gone since you were born my dear, handsome son??? Well, I can tell you that I am very Proud of the young man, you have grown up to be. You are polite, loving and ever so Kind and giving of yourself…& Oh, Yes, so much FUN to be around!!! I am Proud of all of your accomplishments thus far, and I look forward to the next 24 years ahead of you, Marcus. May you have a most wonderful year that lies before and ahead of you, Marcus, doing more of the things that makes and keeps you smiling and ever so happy. Just think that you are nearly a quarter century old!!! Until Next Week: Never Regret Something That Once Made You Smile. I Regret Nothing In My Life…Even Though My Past Was Full of Hurt and Sorrows & I Cried An Ocean Of Tears…I Can Honestly Look Back and SMILE Because It Made Me Into The Awesome, Beautiful Woman That I Am,Today!!!
