By Ms Molly on April 06, 2020 / 59 views

My Dad was one who never knew a stranger, he was a farmer in the Midwest and he spent his winters selling insurance and commodities. Daddy could really talk up anyone and his favorite thing to do was find out their income. Once we were at Chicago's O'Hare airport. This was when you could still be escorted back to your gate. Daddy was siting with me as I waited for my flight to Fort Lauderdale. A...

My church’s food pantry had to close. So my sister picked up all the food, sanitized everything, and created bags of food for all the elderly members of the church who relied on the food pantry. She drove to their homes and left the food at their doors. She did all this after working all...

Good Timber

By Douglas Malloch on April 03, 2020 / 254 views

The tree that never had to fight For sun and sky and air and light, But stood out in the open plain And always got its share of rain, Never became a forest king But lived and died a scrubby thing. The man who never had to toil To gain and farm his patch of soil, Who never had to win his share Of sun and sky and light and air,...

I run a number of youth-serving centers in the northeast USA. Amidst the pandemic, I have been charged with providing child care to the children of hospital workers who are pulling long shifts to keep up with demand. Today, after more strict orders from our governor regarding closure of businesses, my mom asked if I would be closing. I told her no (we have special permission to stay open)...

Since the Covid outbreak, a lot has changed for many people. I am a first time mom, 37 weeks pregnant. There are so many scary things going on, but something great has come out of it all. I've never had something like this happen to me and I was humbled and grateful. I had to cancel my baby shower. Yes, a first world problem, but I was excited to celebrate with friends and family I haven't...

And The People Stayed Home

By Kitty O'Meara on March 27, 2020 / 1,083 views

By Kitty O'Meara on March 27, 2020 / 1,083 views

And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and...

It was the first day of Spring here but it didn’t feel like it. The Coronavirus Pandemic was sweeping the globe and everywhere there were feelings of uncertainty, fear, loneliness and even despair. “Social Distancing” had become the new norm. Here the schools had been closed, the restaurant dining rooms shut, and people had been told to work from home whenever they could. Even the sheltered...

So most Sundays I bang out a quick 5km run around my local park, it resets my body clock after a weekend playing video games or writing until like 3am. So as I'm getting to the last half a kilometre, I see a figure in the distance. They have brightly coloured, pink footwear on, I'm only just sort of registering this in my exhausted state when wham, they hit the deck. Hard. To my...

Americans Are Friendly And Kind People

By A Friend on March 21, 2020 / 920 views

By A Friend on March 21, 2020 / 920 views

America has its problems but as someone who's from the UK, everyone tends to keep to themselves in public and are quite reserved. People are easily pissed off here. When I went to Seattle with my foster parents for a month it was an amazing experience. We were staying with a family member. I remember the houses being so much bigger than the houses in he UK. I went out one day and the neighbour...

By A Friend on March 18, 2020 / 880 views

I (31F) began to lose my hearing about ten years ago, when I was in the military. My husband and I got a cat about five years ago. I've never owned a cat before, so I had no idea what kind of noises they made besides "meow" so I had no context for what to expect when I heard my cat purr for the first time today. I was laying in bed and he jumped up next to me and snuggled into my...

When my daughter was 4 I was so broke. We went to the Christmas tree lot and the man could tell I was about to cry. He "found" a tree that "had a problem" and was free. So he gave it to us. As I walked back home with my kids and our gorgeous tree, along came the tree man in his truck. He threw the tree in and gave us a ride home. I'll never forget...

I Know Why

By Joseph J. Mazzella on March 16, 2020 / 912 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on March 16, 2020 / 912 views

I honestly don’t know how I survived my childhood. I am pretty sure my guardian angel put in for early retirement after taking care of me all those years. I also think I might have been the reason why my Mom had to dye the gray out of her hair so often. Before I was ten years old I had already survived a wreck riding on the back of my older brother’s motorcycle, ruptured my groin when I fell off...

The Light We Live In

By Moladybug on March 05, 2020 / 1,156 views

As I look outside from my desk at work, I have a view of the mountains, a beautiful, partially cloudy blue sky and the random car traffic on our quiet rode. I love this view and consider myself blessed to have it every work day. I have worked for companies where my desk or cubicle had no window view and there are associates at my current company who do not have a view. I know I am lucky and I appreciate it so...

My dear grandmother passed away almost 18 years ago but I still miss her every single day. She was such an important part of my life. My Mom, Dad, brothers and I lived in her old house for most of my childhood. And when I close my eyes and open my heart that is how I remember her. I can still see her in her flower print, cotton dress with a flour dusted apron tied over it. I can see her smiling face with her...
