I had abruptly run out of printer ink just when I needed it, so I found myself making the long drive to the only store around here that sells it. It was the worst possible time to shop. The store was packed with people and the wait at the checkout counter was long. I could see the stress and frustration on the faces of the people around me. It was no better in the parking lot and I found myself in the middle...

We put together out spare change and whatnot and came up with just enough for him to buy lunch....

By Amy Frakowski-Giesecke on January 25, 2018 / 4,950 views

Growing up, I always subconsciously and self-consciously hid my thumbs in my fists because of their weird shape. Admittedly, they do look more like a big toe instead of a thumb and from an early age, my thumbs earned the nickname "toe thumbs." Then, while I was in high school, I worked as a cashier in a grocery store. One day, I was checking out a sweet little old lady and as I counted her change...

It was a cold, dark Winter’s night during my freshman year of college. I was at the local pub drinking steadily with my friends. My body was starting to feel it too. My brain was numb and fuzzy. My vision was getting a bit blurry. My fingers were tingling and my stomach was churning. I felt like I could throw up at any second. Not wanting to embarrass myself in front of my friends I said I was heading...

At times when I’ve been sick, to help me feel better mommy would make me a bowl of soup. I would not only feel better physically, I would feel a whole lot better on the inside too. As we know, it’s so important what we feed our bodies. However, what we feed our minds is also very important, as well as our souls. Love. Joy. Peace. Forgiveness. Kindness. We need to nourish ourselves with these...

Enlightenment is a curious thing. It comes in unexpected moments. It comes in all shapes and sizes. I received a moment of enlightenment just recently from the mouth of a babe. I was heading into the local post office to mail out a few checks to pay a few bills. I saw a young woman who had gone to school with my oldest son. On her hip was her little daughter who was no more than three years old. After talking...

When I was a young man, I had been picking up a friend who had been babysitting. As I was waited for him, I noticed a cage and looked inside. Inside the cage there was a cute little hamster, and I put my finger up to the bars of the cage to pet him. He bit me. I went to the bathroom and washed the blood off of my hands. When I came back I was told, “You missed it! You should have seen it! After you left,...

Looking up at the clear blue sky above, it could see a world of freedom. Snow white wings spread open, the young bird got ready to fly. But with a sudden pang of unhappiness, staring at the shackles that bound its feet to the ground, the bird realized it was deprived of the happiness it so longed for. Freedom, perhaps would always be only, "just a dream". The one thing in this world that...

A few years ago I was invited to a party. There was a disabled guy, sitting in an armchair. I used to have a preconception that disabled people are miserable, but this guy changed my attitude. He was one of the most positive, vivid and funny person I ever met. He worked in a McDrive, and he maintained a very good relationship with the customers. Of course nobody knew that he is disabled, because he was always...

By Mindful Fox on January 15, 2018 / 1,656 views

It is way more helpful to think "What have I NOT YET become?" instead. For all those who feel on their way down instead of an up - I was in near-death situations and crying myself in the pillow out of loneliness too, I get you. But it made me who I am. And your downs are also making you who you are too. And it made me neglect the attitude of constantly losing something, because rather than...
