I was crying pulling into a parking spot to treat myself to fro yo because I was having a day. I caught a glimpse of a teenage girl and dad in the car next to me while I was crying. When I came back after eating the fro yo, their car was gone but this was in my door...

I am lucky enough to have a beautiful neighbour called Chloe Rose . She recently put a shout out on local fb pages, we live in the Macedon Ranges near Melbourne, asking if anyone would like one of the gorgeous "Meeps" she has crafted herself. Chloe doesn't want money in return, all she asks is that the receiver passes the kindness on. Her aim is to spread cheer and brighten...

By Rochelle on August 02, 2021 / 271 views

Just yesterday someone I didn't personally knew messaged me and said that she was looking for a family to bless that day, and that God directed her to us, it was an answered prayer because God knew we were financially struggling at this time. She sent me $50 Au, enough to buy my two babies food and milk. My initial plan was to keep some of it and use to buy even a small Peppa Pig cake for my...

"I just don’t know what my purpose, what my mission in this life is!," a friend wrote me in an e-mail recently. For some reason her letter awakened an old memory in me so I wrote her back and shared this with her. When I was a young Dad my family was struggling just to get by. I was getting a few days work here and there as a substitute teacher. I was teaching every subject and every...

An Old Wet Dog

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 27, 2021 / 588 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 27, 2021 / 588 views

It was several years ago. The air was cool, rain was falling, and it felt more like early Spring than early Summer. I was sitting at the desk I am sitting at now working on my old computer when I saw him. He was an old, wet dog walking up the hill to my house. His furry face was a grizzly white. The leather collar around his neck was faded, worn, and tagless. I could see the ribs sticking out of his sides and...

Yesterday I posted on Facebook a photo of me overlooking the ocean with the title‚ Missing my family 😞. I haven’t seen my family, which lives overseas, in almost 2 years due to Covid, and the longer it takes, the more disconnected I feel. Today my doorbell rang. I opened the door and found an Uber eats' bag sitting in front of me. I was very surprised as I hadn’t ordered...

By Kylie on July 24, 2021 / 539 views

Today I felt a little bit broken. I was up all night with a sick kid, snoring husband and a clingy dog (they are all SOOOOOO lucky I love them so much). Teaching my own 3, my high school students and using my breaks to do washing, house work and get dinner on. Then I was teaching my Year 10s period 5 when what do you see through the study window... My absolute legend of a neighbor quietly sneaking a...

My father and I went to lunch today. Our conversation was about the power of a positive mindset, synchronicities, saving for future dreams and just life in general. The waiter grabbed my attention half way through our meal and pointed towards the exit saying something, I didn’t hear him at first because he was behind the counter which was a fair distance away so he walked over to us and asked...

As I walked to my car in the local shopping mall, I saw a man who was sitting quietly with a sign that said, please help. I often give $20 but after reading these posts over the past few weeks I decided to invest time as well… I stopped and just said… come on buddy… pick up your things and let’s get you some groceries. As we walked back into the mall we...

Today has been a good day. My birthday wish this year was for friends & family to donate blankets & beanies to me. I ended up with nearly 30 blankets & 52 beanies! Unexpected generosity! My husband and I then packaged them up. Each day for the last week I've randomly met a rough sleeper during my lunch, had a conversation with them, bought them lunch (if they wanted it)...

A friend/Buddhist nun’s weekend project was to sell her mother’s mobility scooter online. Joanna Lavelle is 90 and a bit more homebound these days. She and her daughter/my friend went to the shops this morning and her mother stopped to chat, as she always does, today to an elderly gentleman struggling with a rickety cane. She happened to mention the mobility scooter and he said “I...

I don’t own a camera anymore. Yes, I know my computer has one and my daughter is constantly taking pictures and filming little movies with her smart phone. I am talking about those old stand alone cameras that we all used to have. I am even so old that I can remember taking a roll of film over a period of weeks, mailing it out, and then waiting another two weeks to get the pictures back. And half of them...

I was sitting at a social distance near a couple from nearby High River and we got to swapping "feel good stories" at The Little New York Bistro in Longview, Alberta. I told them about a nice woman who was ahead of me in line at a grocery store who asked me to go ahead of her since I only had 3 items. I told the woman that I would but that she has now placed a terrible burden upon me. She...

This week we drove over to spend some time with Aunt Carmeleta. We don't see her very often since she lives in Tennesee. However, this past week her husband Ken drove their motor home to Michigan to attend their Campmeeting. As always, it was great to see Aunt Carmeleta. She met us at the motor home door smiling. She gave us each a big hug and scurried around to make us...

This week, Friday, my husband and I arrived in Madeira where we will live for the next 3 months. As I had to work he went to the next big supermarket to do the grocery shopping and went home by taxi. Once he arrived he learnt that he could not pay by card and did not have any cash. The taxi driver was super nice waived the charge and told him to give him the money if he ever sees him again. What can...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 05, 2021 / 1,126 views

A series of massive thunder storms had battered our area recently. Heavy rains, high winds, hail, and lots of lightening had caused flash flooding, knocked down tree limbs and even toppled trees. I had spent the afternoon picking up branches out of my yard and tossing them away. Then just before I was getting ready to take my dogs for their last walk of the day the warnings came on my television and over my...
