Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Every once in a while, there is a special soul that takes you by surprise and makes you pause. I work in the retail world. As most know, it's not always the easiest world to work in.
But today was different.
How beautiful a day can be, when touched by a simple act of kindness.
Today a sweet young girl named Emma, came through my line with her mom and little sibling. She smiled at me, and I made a comment about her beautiful nail polish and was told by her mom it was for her birthday! Her birthday is in August. As our conversation continued, I shared that my birthday is in August as well. I may of added that us August girls are super special.
Then it happened. Unexpected and sweet kindness, literally took me by surprise. As we were finishing, she quietly offered me a gift. Not just any gift, but a hand coloured and unique little kitty cat figurine she had just made! I also got a hug! Thank you!
Emma, I want you to know your sweet soul and amazing gift put a smile on my face that hasn't left since. It's a beautiful feeling when a stranger makes your heart feel so much joy it just feels like dancing!
My favourite saying, is It is the simple joys, the simple pleasures, the heart remembers and dearly treasures. So, thank you Emma, your kindness, your sweet heart and beautiful smile have made a huge impact on me. I sure hope your smile stays with you as long as the one you have given me does.
Please allow me to introduce you to my new kitty, who I have rightly given the name August
I would like to thank the kind gentleman who helped me out in the Costco parking lot today. I do not know your name, but I hope this message finds you. I was coming out with two cases of pop on the bottom of my cart, when one of the cases fell off. As I bent down to pick it up my receipt flew out of my hand and across the parking lot. Your wife(I am assuming) noticed and asked if I needed it. I said I guess not now, since it was long gone. I continued on and 50 feet later the case fell off again once again spraying pop everywhere (I have no idea how many cans exploded). You found me, and not only returned my receipt to me (I have no idea how you found it, as it was so windy out), but you insisted I go back and return the broken case to the store, and you walked my cart back for me ensuring it didn't fall off again. I was ready to just go home extremely frustrated. Thanks to you I was able to get a new case. I was much more careful this time, and I am very happy to report both cases made it home safely. It's so nice to see there are still gentlemen in our wonderful city. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to help me out. I truly appreciate it!
A huge thank you to all the wonderful young people who jumped to my 87 year old father's aid, when he fell outside of the Casino on Saturday night. He is sore, but basically okay. He remembers all your comforting words and is very grateful to all of you for your help. His words, What great kids they all were.
I'm sorry, I didn't get any names, but you know who you are, and rest assured you are wonderful, caring people! Thank you so much!

On the evening of Friday, July 20th 2018, Meals on Wheels (Sudbury) a charitable organization, was the victim of a break and enter which resulted in significant loss of inventory and supplies.

Thank you to the gentleman with the beautiful smile, driving the black Dodge Ram, who just paid for my coffees at Tim's, corner of Tecumseh and Manning. You made my day, and I will pay it forward!
To the lazy person who neglected to clean up after their dog crapped on the sidewalk going through the beautiful gardens at Reaume Park, go walk somewhere else. It is people like you who ruin it for others. I enjoy walking there with my dog. There was a time when dogs werent permitted there most likely because of what I saw last night. Stay home if you can't clean up after your dog. Don't ruin it for others.
