With the lockdown still in effect across Ontario, many people are feeling lonely and in need of human connection—or at least some messages of hope.
Enter some kind-hearted residents.
On January 25, Cindy Mortimer-Aitchison saw a woman and two children at the community mailbox on Townline Rd. West.
She later discovered that they had left heartfelt and uplifting notes on each and every mailbox.
“I thought it was really cute as each one had a different saying and drawing,” said Mortimer-Aitchison. “You could tell these kids spent a good long time drawing and writing them.”
The notes included messages such as:
-“Spread love wherever you go”
-“Create your own sunshine”
-“Strive for progress, not perfection”
-“Change the world by being yourself”
-“Your only limit is your mind”
-“You are ENOUGH”
-“Do what makes your soul shine”
-“When you focus on the good, the good gets better”
-“You bring out the best in everyone”
Motimer-Aitchson also said that she later witnessed an elderly couple reading the notes and could see how happy it made them.
Mortimer-Aitchison doesn’t know the family who left the notes, but she has a message of her own for them: “Thank you so much for your positivity.”
