Knights Don't Always Come In Shining Armor

Driving to Melbourne on the freeway on Thursday night, just getting dark, overtaking at 110km/h and BANG! A tire blowout. I struggled to remember everything I’d read about what to do and managed to get my car across the two lanes to the side and was shaking like a leaf. I frantically thought about what I could do. I’ve changed many tires over the years but now it was almost dark, on a...

Last Thursday night our West Central Minnesota county was blasted by 100mph straight line winds and tornados. No injuries or lives lost and we are so thankful. Friday I received a text message from an area resident worried about her mom who lives in a rural area, receives meds through a Nebulizer and is on Oxygen. She had no power since the storm Thursday night. I contacted emergency...

'Don't leave me alone,' the eighty-year-old lady extended her skinny wrinkled hand with a deep sigh. 'No, honey. I won't. Just grip my hand,' said the old man turning his head in a smiling face. His loose skin dangled below his chin. Shaking feet didn't pull him as per his wish. The old man asked his wife, 'Honey! Sit here. If we go forward and sit close to...

In The Rain

After sneezing my way through mowing our pollen filled yards yesterday I was pleased to see it was raining this morning. The grass had been dry and the pollen had been high so it was nice to get some showers to give the yards a drink and my nose a break. It also brought a freshness to the air and a coolness that made the morning pleasant. There is nothing quite like a rainy day in Spring and the simple joys it...

This is a story I wanted to share….just to show how often things happen for a reason. And just by having a 5 minute conversation with a stranger can change the course of someone’s day. It brought me to tears and still does. Yesterday my parents were heading off on a little holiday and I took them to the train station. Upon arrival it was pouring rain. I got their luggage out...

By Danica on May 10, 2022 / 603 views

By Danica on May 10, 2022 / 603 views

This is a different sort of kindness but important. If you are lucky enough to have parents that love you, cherish it. My father was sadly involved in all the flooding that we've had in NSW and he lost nearly everything. Recently he told me that he was the saddest about the loss of a bedside table drawer that was full of my old drawings and letters to him when I was a child (I'm...

We moved from AUS to the USA 2 years ago. My Aussie 13 year old just finished her first ever Marathon. At 13 miles she wanted to give up and was really struggling. Around the 14.5 mile - an Australian man, named Andrew, found her crying and realizing she was Australian - they started chatting. This man stuck by her side for the rest of the race - did not leave her as she struggled, cried...

A Single Piece Of Trash

By Joseph J. Mazzella on May 06, 2022 / 758 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on May 06, 2022 / 758 views

It was a lovely Spring morning here in the mountains of my home. The sky was blue, the sun was out, and the air was warm. As I drove along the curvy roads I could see thousands of wild flowers in bloom. When I rounded a curve I slowed as I saw some volunteers picking up trash along the side of the road. I smiled as I saw them doing some “Spring Cleaning” for Mother Earth and my mind floated back in...

It turned out that he used to live there a few years ago and was previously a regular customer. The staff told me...

My beautiful kind hearted daughter has been through quite a few struggles in primary school. She is the one to befriend the pupils who have been outcasted and or bullied even when it’s been detrimental to herself, you know how clicky girls can be. The one thing that she has been excited about all year is the prospect of attending an Amy Shark concert but despite frequenting her website I...

By Lisa on May 02, 2022 / 772 views

Just wanted to give a a shout out to the lovely young woman travelling on last night’s Brisbane-Launceston Virgin flight. She was in the row behind me and found herself sitting next to two young children who were travelling alone back to Tassie after the school holidays (and were a little sad about leaving their dad). She spoke to them and entertained them right from the beginning. The kids,...

A Single Hug

By Joseph J. Mazzella on April 29, 2022 / 955 views

It is strange how a single moment can change a person’s life. It is incredible how one simple act of love can forever transform one’s soul. My adult son walked to the table this morning for breakfast and as he did he opened his arms to me. I opened my arms too and gave him a big hug just like I do every morning. And this time when I did a beautiful memory came back to me. My Italian Nana...

By Catherine on April 26, 2022 / 816 views

Today if you are eating out or grabbing a coffee, if you can, leave a little extra to pay for a returned service person's bill. I attended a dawn service this morning with my 10 year old daughter and we anonymously paid a little extra for an older gentleman in the line behind us. He later found us and was in tears that someone would do this for him. I'm not posting this for...

Went to get my blood drawn yesterday with my 18 month old daughter in tow. The phlebotomist was all too happy to keep my toddler entertained while drawing my blood, and at the end of the draw made a comment on my daughters hair being over he eyes and then said she was a hairdresser as well, had her scissors with her and would I like her fringe cut back? Ended up with a free fringe cut which honestly while it...

See Beyond The Smell

By Joseph J. Mazzella on April 25, 2022 / 792 views

I was driving along with my son the other day when it happened. It went through the car’s engine, out of the AC vents and up my nose. I groaned, coughed, and gagged. My eyes even watered a bit. It was the ultra strong stink of skunk spray. I shook my head and blinked my eyes. “Well at least I know it’s Spring now!,” I said to myself and laughed. Every Spring along with the...

There Is Such Joy In Giving

By Sarah on April 20, 2022 / 1,141 views

I went to the Royal Easter Show with the family and my two children hardly used any of the ride vouchers I had pre purchased. There was over $100 worth of rides per child left on the carnival fun passes. I was sad to see them go to waste. Apparently you could get a refund for unused rides but I wanted to give them away. As we were leaving I gave the passes away to a young man with two...
