When I was 19 and in the Marines, broke as h*ll relying on a bike to get around - I stopped at a yacht dealership one Saturday morning. I always loved boats and the sea. I asked the guy inside if I could look at boats. I was hoping he would allow me to walk the docks just to see them up close. I don't know if he was just bored or what but he took me on a tour of every boat they had...

When I was a kid my dad took my brother and I shopping for school clothes. It was during the 2007-2008 financial crisis and he had been laid off work and was struggling to find a job. My mom managed a fast food restaurant so we had some income, but not enough. Even though I was young I realized that we weren't the best off when it came to money. Our house was being foreclosed so my parents were already...

I Was Driving Down A Busy Road Yesterday

I was driving down a busy road yesterday. Traffic was bumper to bumper and I was in a bad mood. Pull up at the lights on a busy intersection and there’s a man with a really tall unicycle doing tricks at the lights. This on its own isn’t unusual. I’ve seen street performers at these lights before. But in the lane next to me was a truck with three men, who began hollering...

I arrived home today, after staying at my partners last night to some packages. After going through the packages and realising one had been sent to a different neighborhood, I contacted the seller. What I didn't see was a Facebook message request. It was a lovely lady who messaged me to see if I was the person who was missing a package that had been delivered to her address. She said...

I Had A 13-year-old Wander Into The Convenience Store I Work In

By A Friend on April 10, 2024 / 879 views

By A Friend on April 10, 2024 / 879 views

I had a 13-year-old wander into the convenience store I work in. I work in a sketchy part of town that’s full of drugs, guns, and plenty of homelessness. So I was genuinely concerned when I saw her young face, and she looked so worn out and exhausted with all her bags. I asked her what was going on, and she told me that she ran away from home. Soon as she said that, alarm bells started going...

You Get The Face You Deserve

I walked into the bathroom this morning to shave. A part of me wished that I could do it with my eyes closed. I hadn’t enjoyed looking at my reflection in the mirror lately. It just looked too OLD for my 57 years. The thinning hair on my balding head was almost all silver gray now. There were way too many age spots from being out in the sun so much in the last 50 years. There were also deep lines in my...

By Lorraine on April 08, 2024 / 974 views

Yesterday I found myself being on the receiving end of the sweetest kind gesture from a lovely young girl. She was approx 8 to 10 years old and on her own. While going for a walk along the waterfront on the Central Coast I saw this young girl coming toward me and pushing a pretty basic looking trolley with some cuttings in a tray. As she came closer to me she stopped and reached into the...

I heard a beautiful story today at my local bank. An elderly gentleman was depositing a nice sum of money into someone's account. He proceeded to tell the teller that 3 years ago he had a massive heart attack. A young lady - a stranger (19yrs old) revived him. She saved his life! He spoke of her so highly and said how much of a good person she was.....  and today was her...

I was having dinner with a couple of girlfriends this evening at a Vietnamese restaurant. Food, as always, was delicious. And my two besties, as always, were great company. You were another patron, from a different group sitting nearby. As I stood up to leave, you came over and complimented me on my outfit and style. Today hasn't been a great day for me for a variety of...

Sometimes this world is a beautiful place. At the shops my daughter made a purchase at Kmart, no problems, then we went to Target and at the checkout realised she lost $20 obviously at Kmart checkout. On the way back to Kmart to see if someone handed it in (yes, wishful thinking) my daughter saw a gentleman drop his ATM card and she gave it back to him. He said thanks and walked...

One time when I was a kid, I was at a Fun Land. I saw a claw machine that had two black cat beanie babies. I've always loved black cats and so I tried to get them, but I couldn't get them. I was spending all my money trying to get the kitties but just couldn't do it. One of the women who worked there approached me and asked me what I was trying to get. I told her and to my...

It was a wonderfully warm day for March here in the mountains of my home. It was already warm by the time the sun slowly rose over the mountains and everywhere you could feel hints of the Spring to come. I saw the first dandelions and daffodils blooming through the grass. The air had lost it’s cold winter chill. Buds had appeared on the limbs of my Maple tree. And my ears were blessed with a glorious...

Tell me you live in a good community without telling me you live in a good community. Today I put a post up on our local Facebook pages asking if anyone had some pumpkin I could buy as I live 45 mins from the local supermarket and I received multiple messages saying they will drop off a box of fruit and vegetables.  So to Kerry and Allison, I thank you all so much. I...

Today I saw a lady with a sign who needed some money. I don’t normally have cash on me but today I knew I had a $5 note. So as I handed it to her, I asked her name, introduced myself and had a quick chat. The smile on her face from someone seeing her and not just her need, was worth more than any money. I’ve challenged myself to now make sure I have some cash on me...

So today I was cruising with my girlfriend down the freeway and we got backed up in traffic pretty bad so I was impatient as it is, so when we got back into town I swerved at a stop light and swerved back into my lane after seeing a jeep. Our cars bump so we pull into a parking lot and my heart is in my stomach. I walk out to this older guy and go directly to his jeep, I told him I made a...
