Driving buddy

To the cute girl driving the v8 jeep, we were driving buddies from mill bay to the other side of Duncan. We kept making eye contact and you were smiling. We waved goodbye as I took my exit. You're awesome and I'd like to actually get to know you!

Before calling 911

So this has been bothing me since Tuesday and I need to share.

My son who is 8 years old went to Lacasse Park in Tecumseh with his Respite Worker. It was their first day together after a few months of me trying to find one for him with no luck, but that's not the problem.

While they were out I received a phone call from a private name, private number, it was a police officer asking if I knew that my son was with this man This man who by the way has a police clearance in order to become a respite worker, this man who I had interviewed a week prior.
All because 3 woman noticed that my son didn't look like the man he was with, so their conclusion of the situation was that the man isn't his father, so he must be kidnapped because he's calling the man by his first name.

1st thank you for being that concerned, but 2nd please people be aware that not all children with Respite Workers are in wheel chairs, or have Autisim, or Down Syndrom, some kids have mental health issues, and hidden behaviour issues and need a Respite Worker. 3rd that man my child was with could have been an uncle, family friend, neighbor or a boyfriend of mine, because my son's father isn't around and hasn't been for 5 years.

Please when being observant, you keep all factors in mind before calling 911 and reporting things.

Thank You!!

In the shelbourne McDonald's play place my grandson fell and when I picked him up was bleeding all over the place! I was trying to sort out how to get some ice and check his mouth out and another mother in the play place popped up next to me with a cup of ice and handfuls of napkins, she then helped me assess what was going on in his mouth (fat lip) and even gave him a toy to distract him. Thank you so much, I can't tell you how much I appreciated the help and comfort for both of us!! ❤️

You saved my daughters life

I had the most horrifying thing happened today leaving Wal-Mart. My daughter was eating a candy she decided to swallow the whole thing it got stuck in her throat. They could not get it out she was gagging her face went white and purple she couldn't breathe. I didn't know what to do I was trying everything and i was screaming for help. I had a couple come running up to me trying to help but nothing was working we could not get it out of her throat. For a minute she stopped breathing, gagging and stopped moving.
This older lady came running up to us, grabbed Jordan out of his arms and gave her the baby Heimlich. If it wasn't for her who knows what would have happened! I wish I would have got her name, thank God that you showed up and saved my little girl. You are an angel in my eyes, Jordan is now home and everything is good, just have to keep an eye on her breathing. When you think you're prepared for everything and something like that happens I felt so hopeless for my child. Everything I was doing wasn't helping her, watching your child trying to breathe but can't it's the worst feeling ever. So again to this amazing lady who helped my little girl I want to say thank you so much
God bless you xoxo

My beautiful nine-year-old female microchipped Siamese cat "Snowshoe" has been missing since September 11, 2016 from our home at 93 Riverview Blvd., St. Catharines Ontario. There have been no sightings. She could've been relocated anywhere. If you know someone who has acquired a new Siamese cat with her distinguishing white chin, white tipped front paws and white back legs in the last nine months, please let me know. Any leads are welcomed.

The windy sky was appropriate on this special day as we celebrated the raising of our beautiful Canadian flag (http:/ / www.greatcanadianflag.com). The flag was raised at Dieppe Gardens as many gathered together cheering and applauding. As O' Canada echoed through the crowd, gunshots were fired as a part of Windsors 125th Birthday celebrations. Everyone was filled with such joy watching the amazing addition to our Windsor skyline.

Pay it forward

I was grabbing a few groceries at fairways in Brentwood and an elderly man told me he had misplaced his cane in the store. I told him not to worry I'll go look up the isles for you. I couldn't find it so I told him I'd go get someone from the store to help him . While I waited in line one woman said she had heard me talking to him and hadn't noticed the cane either. As the cashier rings my groceries in I went to grab my wallet and it wasn't in my purse. I said I just live up the road I'll be right back in 5, I'm so sorry is that ok?
The woman who overheard me talking to the elderly man over heard this and walked over and said I'll pay for it. I said oh no it's ok I'll be back in 5. She insisted, said its only 20 dollars, let me help you. I have never been so overwhelmed and thankful. A big thank you to who bought my groceries. I would like to repay you if I can find you and I will definitely be paying this forward.
