Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Amherstburg
Today I took my nieces to help me put some smiles on random people's faces. We grabbed 2 dozen roses which were donated by Victorias Flowers and Gift Baskets. We also had 25 $5.00 Tim Hortons gift cards. We sat at the entrance and I asked them to look around and tell me who they want to give these items too. They were off, running around with a rose and gift card in their hands. Putting smiles on random people's faces. But the rewarding part for them was when a lady teared up and thanked them for making their day. My oldest niece said to me "I'm so happy because we made so many people happy. Then it started....people randomly walked up to them and had bought them some treats from the shoppers across from us. Even people they didn't get to give a rose to were still bringing them a little gift. The smiles they brought to faces was only part of it. It was a huge deal to me that they understood why we were doing this. Thank you everyone who smiled back at them and thanked them for the little gift. It made my day and theirs, Merry Christmas. #Randomactofkindness #smiles #Merrychristmas

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate peoples kindness. Every morning I stop at Timmies on Dougall (near staples) for my coffee. There's always that one car that come in the drive-thu line from the opposite direction and I always let them in front of me. Every time I let someone in, they have always thanked me by buying my coffee. So to all those wonderful people these past few weeks, I would like to say THANK-YOU!!! I really appreciate it.
It's such a small gesture, I don't understand why people are in such a rush that they can't let a car go in front of them, is 1 extra minute of waiting time really going to make you that late?
To my children, Every time we go through a drive-thru my kids have a blast. I started following this page a year ago. Every time my kids come home from school they want me to read them all the good stories. The stories about people who pay it forward and good deeds done in and around the city. It makes them so happy to hear about all these awesome people that live in our city. Now this is where it gets good...
The get some money every week for completing their chores, and birthdays and such. Every time we go through a drive thru they ask me to find out how much the order behind us was. When I do and if it’s something they can afford they ask if they can pay for it. I allow it and I sometimes chip in if they do not have enough on them. (It’s usually only 2-5 bucks). The reaction they get from people as they wave to them saying thank you is what they enjoy most. They tell me they feel so good after that and they love it. I am very proud of them for how much they are growing up caring about others and realizing how great it feels to do something kind for another person. They have since collected can goods/ clothes and small gifts and dropped them off at local charities and organizations. This all started with a couple stories from last December I read to them from this page. I just wanted to give you guys a shout out and possibly a story to share with others. Merry Christmas and I wish you guys a very awesome 2015!!

Cancer has touched a lot of people around me. This is a local comedian from Windsor who is dealing with it the best way he knows. Josh has created a video with more to come to maybe help himself deal with Cancer by helping others see it through his eyes.

I adopted Bella on July 10, 2014, from the Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society where she sat unwanted for two months. She was the very last dog I looked at and well, she chose me.
On Sunday November 30, at 10:45AM, I was bringing Bella home from her trip to the park and what she did next amazed me.
Sunday was the first time Bella refused to listen to me. We walked in the apartment building and when the elevator door opened, Bella refused to get in, she promptly dragged me into the lobby at full speed and went behind a couch and out of sight from everyone was an elderly man laying on the floor having a heart attack, I called 911 and Bella laid next to him with her paw in his arm and wouldn't budge until the paramedics got there. Way to go Bella, I'm so proud of you!!!
