Some weeks ago, our friend was chatting with us and mentioned out of the blue that she loves the tacos from a certain fast food restaurant near her. Almost immediately, I knew I wanted to surprise her with them at some point. I get super impatient when I have to wait to surprise someone, but somehow I managed. read more →

This is really simple but I was caught off guard and it was a really nice change.
As my son and I were leaving a local restaurant today, I held the door for several older couples going in and out. Just as I was about to let it go, I saw someone coming around the corner so I waited. She saw my little boy was outside of this little entry way and told me to go ahead, but I told her to go ahead because I wasn’t in any hurry (we’re still technically on vacation). read more →
Walking into a shopping centre, I saw an elderly gentleman asleep on a bench. It was a very cold day and I just happened to look down at his nice leather shoes to notice he wasn’t wearing any socks.
I continued on my way thinking about this man when I saw a sign out the front of Target that said 25% off explorer socks. What are the chances of that! I went in and bought 5 pairs so I knew his feet would at least stay warm and toasty for 5 days. read more →
So I’ve had to work through my lunches and stay significantly late after work for 3 days now. I get out of work 45 minutes late tonight and when I arrive at the gate to leave the parking garage, somebody is already waiting there. read more →

I went to Comic Con last weekend and had a photo opportunity with an amazing (and gorgeous) Canadian actor. When I walked in the booth he grabbed me, pulled me into a giant hug and told me that I’m beautiful (not in a creepy way… he was very sincere). read more →
When my daughter went right up to a lady she didn’t know and patted her giant teddy bear at The Show last night, I jumped into smile an apology and pull her back. My daughter is on the autism spectrum and struggles to see things from other people’s point of view, so didn’t realise that she was being a bit rude. read more →
In October 2015, I was diagnosed with stage 3b cancer. I’ve finished all treatments and am now in remission, but going through the experiences of radiation and chemo, I learned how hard it is, not only on the patient but for caregivers as well. Since then I’ve tried to be conscious of opportunities to reach out to families dealing with cancer. read more →
