When We Grow

By Joseph J. Mazzella on August 12, 2019 / 642 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on August 12, 2019 / 642 views

An unusually hot and wet spring this year was followed by an extremely hot and wet summer. Sunny skies were constantly giving way to heavy showers only to be replaced with more sun and heat. This combination has made for a few changes from our regular Summer here in the mountains of my home. The limbs on the trees are growing twice as fast as usual and their leaves are huge. The Queen Anne’s Lace,...

Potholes And Sour Candy

Oh where to begin...life can be a thorn in your side (or in my case, a nail) leaving you feeling defeated and full of self doubt and disappointment. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! But you need to know one thing-the only way to make lemonade out of those nasty molded lemons life throws your way, is to change your attitude about it all. You see, it's not necessarily about the situation you find yourself in, but the way...

Time Is Passing Whether You're Using It Or Not

By A Friend on August 07, 2019 / 872 views

By A Friend on August 07, 2019 / 872 views

Imagine today in 2029 - 10 years from now. You will still be you, except you will have changed. Think back the 2009 version of you and I bet you will struggle to recognise that person. Regardless of whether you are consciously changing - you are changing whether you want to or not. We overestimate what we can achieve in a week and underestimate what we can achieve in a year. Habits are...

If Anyone Is Going Through A Tough Time, Please Read This

I know things can become difficult in life. Everyone has a different story. Everyone is unique in their own ways. Everyone is healing in their own way and in their own time. People say this a lot, but it is true. It does get better. I promise you that it really does. In the past few years, I've gone from not wanting to live and continue on with my life to laughing every night and living life to...

Two Souls Passing

By Peter Woodruff on August 02, 2019 / 1,042 views

"Promise me two things" Not today, Dad, I thought. Please not today. But my plea went unheeded. When my father had something to say, he said it. "Promise me I'll die in my own bed." Really, Dad, can't this wait? "Promise me I won't die alone." There it was. Almost three years ago Dad asked me to make those...

I Came Home To My Future Husband Singing In The Shower For The First Time Ever

By A Friend on August 02, 2019 / 643 views

By A Friend on August 02, 2019 / 643 views

He has never sung anything ever. I've never heard him even fake sing. No teasing, nothing. He struggles with self consciousness and struggles to ignore what others might think of him. But he's got the Proclaimers on blast while he's singing along, and I realized I'm just so happy to get to come home to little moments like these. I'm all warm and fuzzy. I don't think I'll...

How A Silly App Helped Me To Embrace My Ageing Self

By Marisa Garau on July 30, 2019 / 809 views

By Marisa Garau on July 30, 2019 / 809 views

Last February I turned 51. And to be honest, it didn't make me jump with joy. Of course, I still recognised the face in the mirror. But it definitely didn't reflect my inner me anymore. While I retreated to the desolate land of quiet mourning, a tsunami of hallelujah stories swept through the web about age-enthusiasts who are carving out a whole new career, accomplishing...

The Best Baseball Game I've Ever Been To

By A Friend on July 30, 2019 / 1,070 views

By A Friend on July 30, 2019 / 1,070 views

Growing up I didn't realize how poor we were. My parents were amazing at providing for us. We loved watching baseball games and I wanted to go to a game so bad. We never could afford it. To make up for it, while we were at school, my mom made up tickets to that night's game and money for us to "spend". When we got home she had set up chairs in front of the TV and numbered them....

My cat learned that the alarm sound means I wake up, and she snuggles on my chest right after. I've been setting my alarm 30 minutes early every day to give her more happy...

A Message

By Jme on July 29, 2019 / 961 views

The other day life was knocking me around pretty hard. It was one thing after another, and difficult to stay positive. I was really down. Out of the blue a dear friend sent an amazing message. It was a life line. Literally a life line. She later surprised me with a gorgeous bouquet of roses to brighten my day, and a bag of food for me and my family. Her act of kindness meant...

We chatted through Google translate the entire time. Mr Tran you are a Bro! Some more info: We were in the middle of nowhere and my brothers motorbike began having issues (quitting...

35 Years

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 23, 2019 / 899 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 23, 2019 / 899 views

Isn't it incredible how the longer we live on this Earth the more the passage of time between the world outside us and the world within us seems out of sync? I attended my 35th high school reunion recently. It was held at the 4-H camp that I grew up next to as a child. When I got there the very first thing I noticed was the little Oak trees that I used to climb up as a boy now seemed as tall as Redwoods....

"Kindness like a boomerang always returns" ~ Animal Quotes ~ Many years ago there were no leash laws. People's pets were allowed to roam around freely. It was hard to tell sometimes if an animal was someone's pet or a stray. While we lived in Kentucky there was a cat I named Miss Kitty who came to visit every so often. When she arrived she would meow at the front door....

I Found My Husband's Secret Stash

By A Friend on July 19, 2019 / 1,236 views

We keep no secrets from each other. I went looking for one of our old credit cards. He has a few little hidey holes for important stuff, he's like WALL-E, so I went to his bedside table, bottom drawer, where he occasionally keeps old financial stuff. And there it was, just staring at me. I had no idea. Every card I've ever given him, every cutesy love letter, every sappy post-it....

7 years ago, when I was 24, my wife was killed in a horrible car accident, leaving me (in complete shock and grief) as a single father to our 2 kids (at the time they were 1 and 3 years old). I didn't have any post high school education and was working as a construction worker. Before my wife passed away, we both worked full time and were able to rent a small but nice house. But as a...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 17, 2019 / 1,229 views

I was 17 years old. Along with a dozen other boys I had made a long trip to Iowa in order to see a college that I was thinking of attending. While the trip had been fun for the most part, now that I was there I was feeling depressed, alone, and isolated. I was missing my family and was realizing that I wouldn't be seeing them very much if I went to school here. I was also missing the Appalachian mountains...
