Brexit, Donald Trump’s tweets, climate change…there’s so many horrid things going on in the world at the moment, it might seem as though the news is saturated by negativity.
Which is why, when a feel-good story comes along, it’s a rare gem.
An 88-year-old woman called Tinney Davidson has gone viral after spending over a decade waving to the children in her town as they went to school.
The Canadian lady, from Comox British Columbia, has been waving a good morning to the school children who walk by her house for 10 years, ever since she and her husband moved back into their house in 2007.
Tinney would sit in her chair near the window, and she would wave at the high school students going to their local high school – and watch, delighted, as they waved back.
Following the death of her husband, her lovely tradition continued.
And now she’s leaving.
But the school children, who had given her many cards and gifts for Valentine’s Day, decided to give her a send-off she wouldn’t forget.
Over 400 students gathered in front of her house with signs saying ‘I love you’ and bunches of flowers.
Tinney tearfully told CBS News: “I was shocked, again, that there are so many kids that want to say goodbye to me.”
