To the editor,
This is an open letter to anyone who was at the Food Bank on Friday, May 2. After walking for an hour-and-a-half on feet that were sore from my rheumatoid arthritis, some thoughtful person relieved me of the burden of carrying my oh-so-heavy purse.
If you know who this person is please thank them for me. In the case that this citizen is reading this thank you at this time. You have saved me from a lot of wasted time reading, since you now have my glasses and I cannot afford to replace them. Here’s hoping they help you see. Oh and all this time I used to waste fumbling with my keys. What a relief it is to leave everything unlocked, just like the good ol' days. My telephone and cable can go unpaid since you have their money.
What the heck does an unhealthy grandma need a phone for anyway? You have also saved me from another major headache: a flight to Ontario to visit my 80-year-old mother on her birthday. Never mind that my brother saved to buy me the ticket, I can’t pick up my ticket without my ID.
So whoever this kind and thoughtful person is, on behalf of my family and myself, thank you for lessening all those extra burdens. In the true spirit of Pictou County let me say I hope you needed all these things more than I do.
P.S If you have finished enjoying my family photos could I have them back please?
