I Always Say I Love You...

By A Friend on January 25, 2020 / 223 views

By A Friend on January 25, 2020 / 223 views

...to my son, to my cat, and then to myself. When we are all laying in bed, I'll look at my son and tell him I love him. Then I'll look at the cat and figure I should tell her I love her too. Then I think that I am also in the room, and I would love to hear that I love myself too. Every time, it feels simple and accepting. And it's probably a great example for my...

What You Pass On

I was lying on my back this morning doing a few light exercises hoping to coax a little more energy into my aging body to face another day. As I was doing them, however, my eyes and mind started to wander. I looked up at an old picture of me and my children back when they were only three, six, and eight years old. It must have been taken almost 25 years ago, yet it still seemed like yesterday. I noticed...

We both had jury duty at the same court house but on different floors. My floor had the room where you first report and where you get your paperwork after being excused. I was sitting in the hallway waiting around and looking at my phone when the elevator opened and a bunch of excused jurors got off. I looked up, absentmindedly glancing at random faces, when I saw my husband. He stepped out of the...

Do You Know Why?

I can not tell you the shock I felt when my husband Bill told me he was thinking about driving an 18 wheeler across the country. For all of our married life, Bill had worn a suit or a sport coat with a shirt and tie to work. Bill even had training in the Twin Towers in New York City. My first response to this truck driving excursion was, "You don't even know how to drive a truck!"...

I was at Trader Joe’s buying wine and cookies, the cashier ID’s me and sees it’s my birthday tomorrow. He disappears suddenly and comes back with these, says "Happy early birthday." Probably the most unexpected, sweetest thing someone’s done for...

If you're like me, most of your days are uneventful. I never expected when I went to South Broadway Nursing Home, for my weekly visit, that this night would be any different. Boy, was I wrong! I walked into the nursing home that evening at 7:00. As always, I had my basket full of candy for the residents and the staff. Each evening I would start by leaving my coat and purse in Bertha's room....

My two sons are all grown up now. They are 32 and 27 years old this year. Yet they both still have the minds of children. Autism has limited their intellectual growth over the years and they still need to be looked after 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When I was a boy the term used for people like my sons was Mentally Retarded. By the time I was an adult the term had switched to Mentally Handicapped. Later...

My Dad Just Sent Me $10,000

By A Friend on January 03, 2020 / 1,257 views

By A Friend on January 03, 2020 / 1,257 views

Growing up I’ve always been very independent. I’ve never asked for my parents for money or help, and I’ve always lived a pretty secluded life from them. We’re close, but not in a “I’m going to tell you every detail of my life” way. A little back ground: I moved out at 17, went to university, and dropped out in my third year. I married my long term boyfriend,...

My husband Bill's Grandma Z was quite a character. Over the years we grew very close and I was actually with her when she died. In Grandma Z's later years she lived in a nursing home. Her eyesight was almost gone and she spent most of her day in a wheelchair. For the most part, her mind was sharp until the end of her life at age 101. We lived out of state for several years and...

Walking Through Life

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 31, 2019 / 1,599 views

It was a day in late December. The Christmas tree had been taken down. The lights and decorations had been boxed up and put in the closet until next year. And I was feeling a little blue. I sure wasn’t looking forward to the long, cold, dark Winter to come. I had always been a light lover on the inside. I tried to take comfort in knowing that a few more minutes of daylight was being added each day, but I...

Years ago, back in the middle 1970s, my friend, Art, used to see a young man about 16 years of age and a large dog walking along the road. When cars would pass him on the other side, he made eye contact and waved. Art saw him almost daily, walking along the road waving at cars. One rainy day Art saw him and pulled over. He asked if he could use a ride. The young man said, "I'm not really...

Without questioning, when going through a serious illness, you learn to know what faith truly is, along with finding the true meaning of beauty and how you really feel about yourself. I know this all too well, because I've experienced many trials and tribulations in my life. Through it all, I gain strength that I never knew I had, and much more confidence in myself, which lead me to loving myself all over...

Last year I worked patrol on Christmas Eve and I came across these two (and their 3 kids) who were living in a vehicle at a park. A huge storm was rolling in and they needed a miracle. Letters To Santa Charity (LTS) came in like Santa himself. With only a simple text to the board (Justin Crone, Aileen Crone, Betty Julian, Sargon Eddy, Megan Bruce, and Nick Bashaw), elves went to...

We Are Worthy

By Vance R. G. Angel on December 23, 2019 / 1,019 views

By Vance R. G. Angel on December 23, 2019 / 1,019 views

I wouldn't say I'm particularly rich by societies standards, but on the front of wealth measured by experience and valuable lessons, I would consider myself very wealthy. On another hand I would rather say "grateful". I have almost completely lost interest in exploring for what I can see, and I have discovered far more beauty lying beneath the surface of the people all around me....
