I am absolutely flawed by the kindness of the man who handed my laptop in to Logan Police today. I never put anything on the top of my car but earlier today I left my laptop on there, forgot about it and drove away. Incredibly it’s completely fine… no damage despite falling off my car. Thank you kind stranger. I’m so very...

Most Impactful Kindnesses In My Life Time

15 years ago my son was 14 and he was diagnosed with brain cancer just two months after my own mother passed away from cancer. I had just recently become a single mother of two and this on top of everything else was devastating to me, emotionally and financially as can be imagined. There were so many acts of kindness over the two years of surgery, treatment, recovery, I could never cover it...

We were in the eighth day of a heat wave that seemed to have no end. The summer heat and humidity were draining and it had gotten so hot that I was even having trouble falling asleep at night. My body felt tired and not ready to take on the day. I sat slowly drinking my morning coffee and hoping that it could help to lift up my eyelids more than half-way. It was early in the morning and already felt afternoon...

There are amazing people in this world put there to brighten peoples days! Working with my participant, we went to pick up some dinner, he asked some questions and the staff member was so understanding and listened and answered his questions. We sat and waited and they gave our meal and said good-bye. We hopped in the car and found a joke on the receipt from the staff member, knowing he...

I had just finished taking my dogs for their last walk of the day while darkness slowly fell over the mountains of my home. Just as I closed the door, though, a flicker of light caught my eye. I turned my head to see that a little lightening bug had flown in with us through the open door and was now frantically trying to get out again. As he flew slowly towards the door I quickly but gently closed my fingers...

My hubby and I were having lunch at our local shopping centre today and as we got up to leave, he said, "I feel prompted to do this", as he walked over to an obviously new young mom and handed her $50. She tried to refuse many times but his persistence paid off. (He's a keeper 💙) It is a much greater blessing to give, than...

My 2-year-old daughter had a procedure today. In recovery she was so upset and beside herself for a long time, despite the best efforts of the lovely staff. A young girl, maybe 10-12 years old who had also just had a procedure came and offered her brand new stuffed toy to my daughter to cheer her up. She fell in love with it straight away and cuddled and kissed it, and it really did cheer...

Last year my son and I went to Lowe's to buy his grandpa a weed eater and a certain attachment that goes with it. Grandpa is a little older and slower than he used to be, but he does a lot for us, so we wanted to spend a little money to help make his life a little easier. As we get there, there's only ONE of the attachments left that we wanted. Well, there was a guy there getting it down for...

It was a beautiful, Summer morning today. I took my dogs for their morning walk just as the sun was rising over the hills. The air was still cool and I laughed as I watched my dogs romp and play in the grass still wet with the morning dew. Then I did some morning chores and made myself a warm breakfast and a hot cup of coffee. I didn’t want to ruin the perfect peacefulness of the morning by turning on...

My faith in humanity was restored yesterday! I accidentally left my handbag by a bench at the beach, by the time I realised (had gone for a walk with the kids and my Mum) it was gone. I thought the worst, locked my cards, rang my husband for spare keys for the car etc. Prompted by my mum I checked my messenger inbox to find ‘Sharon’ had found my bag and lived a...

I have family members traveling abroad in London and France. Yesterday I woke to a message that a family member’s passport and everything else in a wallet was pickpocketed. Today we see a Facebook comment on one of their posts that was set to public that the passport had been found!! A wonderful gentleman had found it and worked diligently to contact someone in the family to get the...

An Old Dog, A Young Puppy And Me

My daughter’s dog, “Thunder”, has been in declining health for months now. He is eating less, sleeping more, and generally not doing well. Sadly, it is a pattern I have seen too many times as my own dogs have gotten older. Thunder is 12 years old or 84 in people years. It has always seemed so unfair to me that our dogs live such short lives compared to ours. Seeing that...

While standing in the checkout lane today, my hands were aching due to an injury, plus cold, so I was blowing on them. I'd been chatting, ever so briefly, to the lady behind me. She suggested that I get some winter gloves! I agreed with her and was thinking about where I would find some that would fit over a thumb brace. Anyways, I kept unloading my trolley, then suddenly she offered...

This Is Just Too Amazing Not To Share

This is just too amazing not to share... I posted on our local Moms page, asking for tips about patching up my son's carpentry tool belt where his chisel had made a hole. I have patched a lot, but nothing as heavy duty. Amazing tips rolled in, but one insanely kind mom offered and insisted on helping my son out financially so he could replace the pouch. She understood having a...

A Peek Of Sunshine

By Joseph J. Mazzella on June 14, 2024 / 2,400 views

It was the last in a line of long, dreary, rainy days. I hadn’t seen the sun come out for more than a few moments for the better part of the week. Being a light lover this had left me feeling tired, rundown, and a bit grumpy. Even though I don’t usually pray about such things I asked God for just a peek of sunshine to brighten my day, warm my heart, and uplift my spirits. I stopped by a...
