These two ladies profoundly impacted my life and I will never be able to thank them personally, so I will do it here. First, to the random teenage girl on the train: You were talking with your friend. She seemed really depressed because she could not get a boyfriend. I was half listening to the conversation while dozing off and heard you say: "WHY do you want a boyfriend...

You're Worth Fighting For!

I've been sad lately thinking about my life and how much I've let God down. I've been feeling pretty worthless and just feeling like I'll probably be one of those that God doesn't want. The thing is I confessed this to my husband last night and I cried. He comforted me and told me I was a good woman and I was worth fighting for speaking of God. It was all too nice. But it wasn't from...

Whenever I travel and get on the plane, I usually carry two bags. A big hand bag or a tote, and a small shoulder bag. The small shoulder bag is where I put the important stuff, like my passport, so I could take it with me wherever I go. I had a 7-hour layover in Stockholm for my flight to Barcelona. It was enough time to visit the old city and come back to the airport. I was on my way to purchase a train...

Have you ever made a silent wish, but deep down you knew it was impossible to come true and you knew it was more like just a wishful thinking? And then later, did you forget all about it? Many years passed by and one day you have no idea your wish is about to come true. The Universe gives you a preview of what is to come, signs in disguise as coincidences to prepare you, but you are clueless until it actually...

I realized something this morning. I have been writing now for 34 years. It all started when I was just 18 years old. As a boy growing up I had read literally hundreds of books. I had read mysteries, histories, Science Fiction, thrillers, text books, and the Bible. I had read on every subject I could. I had a thirst for knowledge that seemingly could never be quenched. Then suddenly I found that I too had...

Betty Thompson, a longtime resident of Rose Villa, has always been one to shatter stereotypes. In 1943, she fearlessly joined the Marine Corps at a time when women were needed most. Not only did she train male pilots how to fly – a task that at the time made men uncomfortable – she quickly worked her way up to lead the ranks. Obtaining a leadership position in a short period of time was not only...

"Stocking up for Winter?", said the cashier with a smile. She was looking at my shopping cart which was full of toaster pastries and big boxes of cereal. I knew that question was coming. A little earlier I had stopped into the local food pantry to see if there was any small thing that I might contribute. The shelves held canned vegetables, canned tuna fish, boxes of macaroni and cheese, and many...

Yesterday I found $8 on the ground while going to buy groceries from the local outlet. That $8 made my day and helped pay for my dinner. But it also got me thinking, whoever lost that $8, probably had a bad day. So I just want to say I hope my happiness and gratitude comes back around for...

I was just about to take a bite of my mozzarella sticks when my brother called me to let me know he was out of his appointment early. Starving little me decided it was a good idea to drive and dip my sticks into the sauce all the while watching my gps, so of course something dumb was bound to happen, as it did. I hit a curb on my way out and I guess it was bad because I immediately felt the car weigh down and...

For the past 33 years I have lived and worked in Africa, far from my mother who lived in Los Angeles. One night I dreamed of her as she slowly walked up the stairs to her apartment. She was a heavy woman and she walked slowly and painfully, as she reached the last step, she looked up at me and said "Baby, I'm not going to make it, I'm just too tired." The next morning I got a communication...

"Jamie, I can’t tell you how fortunate I felt that our paths crossed when they did. It is so rare...

I've been suffering from dental pain all weekend and can't afford to go to the dentist. None of the homemade toothache remedies are working. I don't know why, but something inspired me to grab this small teddy bear that my birth daughter's adoptive mom had given me when she was little. It's white and has a t-shirt on it with a picture of McKenna, my birth daughter when she was in...

We came across QuRan where he showed my grandfather which feed he would need. We then paid for the feed and proceeded to go to the lawn services kiosk. An employee informed us that...

We’d also like you to know the power that you possess, that we often pass off as mundane. Your smile can create another. Your voice can create conversation. Your insight can draw parallels between others who may not...
