I went to Costco yesterday with my girlfriend and I looked over and seen the reaction of this little girl about 4 yrs old blonde hair and the biggest smile and the Mom said she loved my shirt which had a snowman on it so I gave her a wave and she waved back to me and then I gave her a thumbs up and she gave me one back and the Mom turned to me and said she just gave up a thumbs up sign and I know I seen she made my day after that I tried to look for them when we were checking it but could not find them I wanted to tell the Mom she is raising this little girl right . This was on Mon July 13 2015 around 12:30- 1:00 pm if you can pass this story after round would love to tell the Mom I will never forget that the rest of my life
I would like to say thank you to the driver of a white van that was in line on the bridge around noon on Canada Day. My husband and I were in line at the customs booth for over an hour. When we had enough waiting and tried to switch lines this driver was the only person that was willing to let us cut in along side with the couple ahead of us.
I know this doesn't seem like a big thing but after waiting so long this act of kindness really turned our day around.
Thanks a million!

Spotted : A few weeks ago I was walking with my dog on riverside and I noticed an older gentleman who was having trouble collecting papers that went flying around because of the wind. I helped him gather what I could and once we were done I walked over to him. I gave him what I had from what looked like very old letters. I asked him if he noticed anymore missing. I took a closer look and I noticed watery eyes. He said he accidently dropped his book that had all these letters in it, letters that him and his wife wrote each other throughout the years. I told him I would help him. Every letter had a number in the top right corner and he had a total of 195. He was missing page 17 and 77, so we started looking. A few others joined in after about 10 minutes of searching. At one point we almost had 15+ people looking for he last missing page 77. While looking he told me his wife had passed away 5 years ago and every now and then he pulls out these letters that they wrote to each other while he was away from her(before texting and emails). I broke down into tears just listening to him tell me the story. Suddenly we hear a scream from a distance. This middle age man was trying to run as fast as he could to us screaming "I FOUND IT" this old man was so anxious to see the last page to make sure it was the right one. I was so happy to see that page 77 was now in his hands again. I helped him count the papers one more time to make sure they were all there. To all those people who walked by and stopped to help, you are amazing. To that old man, I hope one day I find exactly what you found with your wife. It was so beautiful to sit and talk to him for that little while.
I just thought I would share this story, hoping it makes someone's day!
