By Joseph J. Mazzella on January 05, 2021 / 1,069 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on January 05, 2021 / 1,069 views

The mountains where I live are full of turning, twisting, narrow, curvy roads. I was driving down one of those roads last Spring. Days of on and off rain had made the ground muddy and hillsides mushy. As I rounded a curve I saw that the weakened soil had released a tree on the hill by the road. It was now laying on the asphalt blocking my lane. I hit the brakes and slowly drove around it. Then I stopped. I...

It was a scary delivery that ended in an emergency C-section. We were so grateful to have Joseph John Mazzella II also known as JJ sleeping peacefully in the cradle next to our bed. The day before we had been on the road showing off our little...

Something nice that I definitely needed tonight. For the past 15 years, my family (all 13 of us that are local) has gone Christmas caroling in my neighborhood, it’s tradition. We aren’t good at it, but we love doing it. It’s the one time of the year we can see some of our neighbors that we don’t see regularly, and in general, do something fun. This year, for...

I was sitting at my kitchen table the other day with a pen, notebook, calculator, and a stack of bills. I was doing my monthly budget. There were bills for electric, water, rent, insurance, the car payment, the phone bill, and the cable bill. Plus money needed to be set aside for food, gas, clothes, and hopefully a little left over to save for those unexpected bills that always seemed to show up. When I was...

I wanted to share a positive story and spread some of that same love around. A few weeks ago my very old, mostly blind dog decided to go on a walk about. When I tried to call for him he got disoriented and ended up going down into a hill covered in blackberry bushes. If you’ve ever lived in the PNW, you'd understand how awful that really is. I was so distraught and lost as to...

I use this "If, then" mindset quite often and it puts momentum to where I want to go and what I want to do. This can be a food for thought to some who struggles with taking action. I discovered this when I was having this self-help stage in my life and I didn't find an easy explanation to this at the time. I only discovered this after reading tons of self help books and watching tons...

It was a hot, humid Summer day a few years ago. I had just pulled into the local gas station to fill my tank. After pumping the gas I started to walk inside to pay. That is when I noticed them. Two elderly women where standing back from their car. There was a mixture of shock, fear, and dread on their faces. I looked and saw what they saw. Five yellow jackets had started to build a nest around their gas cap....
