Feel Good Friday: This week's uplifting stories for Oct. 14

(WTVM) - People often say the news is depressing, and there's never anything positive being reported.

Well, we'd have to disagree.

While we often cover many tragic cases, we also share many stories of ordinary people spreading hope and happiness throughout their community.

Throughout the week, we'll compile a list of uplifting or positive stories and share them on Friday.

Take a look at these feel-good stories from earlier this week:

1. A little boy battling cancer got the chance to become a pilot for a day. 

2. A couple who met at CSU was left scrambling when Hurricane Matthew threatened their wedding. Fortunately, they were able to relocate back to Columbus to say "I do."

3. Some South Georgia students spent a day of their fall break helping clean up in Jacksonville after Hurricane Matthew.

4. Tim Tebow comforted a fan who was having a seizure, praying and talking college football with the man after playing his first baseball game in the Arizona Fall League.

5. A 4-year-old boy who wants to be a police officer when he grows up got the chance to meet one, and it was as adorable as you'd expect. 

6. The accolades continue for a Muscogee County Correctional officer who's being hailed as a hero for helping  save the life of an inmate.

7. A Louisiana sheriff's deputy never turns down an opportunity to sing at church, and he's been known to sing while on patrol.

8. The furry residents at PAWS Humane in Columbus received a tasty surprise after an anonymous donor left dozens of bags of dog food at their door overnight.

9. An 8-week-old kitten was found out on Highway 80 near Tybee Island after Hurricane Matthew. Now "Storm" is ready to find his forever home.
