By Melissa on November 07, 2022 / 670 views

Last night my husband and I took our 3 children out last minute for dinner at Montezumas at Mooloolaba. There was a friendly couple sitting behind us repeatedly commenting on how beautiful our family and children were and that our youngest reminded them of their grandchild. When we finished dinner, we went to counter to pay (like usual) but when we arrived the cashier persisted to tell us...

Today I was driving through Nambour in 4 lane traffic. My car has no air-conditioning so I was already on fire and what do I see but a family of delightful ducks,crossing the road in a most unsuitably unsafe place. In a moment of sheer terror for the poor doggo in the backseat I pulled the best u-turn a Tiida has ever seen the wrong way into a one way street. As I alighted from my newly found rally...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on November 02, 2022 / 817 views

It was the middle of winter some 30 years ago. I was a young father with 3 little children counting on me. My college education, however, wasn’t helping me to find a good job in our depressed area. My work as a substitute teacher had dried up and now I was working in a saw mill for just above the minimum wage. As I got ready to go to work I wrapped band-aids around my fingers and put more in my pockets....

I stopped on my way into town today as this little one was going alongside a busy road with not many places to go. I had pulled over to the side of the road with my hazard lights on as I also had not much room. Most people just drove around me but one gentleman pulled over on the other side of the road to make sure I was ok in the first instance. Together we worked out a plan and carried out a...

Last week I was on my lunch break from work and went to the nearby petrol station to buy a drink. I had left and was about to head back to work when a man asked me for money for a drink. He was carrying lots of bags and didn't seem to be having a good day. I said I didn't have any cash but let's go back into the servo and I'll buy him one. He was so relieved and...

Making Time For The Important Things

Earlier this year the phone companies stopped supporting the software for my old 3G flip phone so like the rest of the modern world I was forced to buy a new Smart Phone. I didn’t use it much at first, only to get a call from my daughter or to play a game or two. Soon, however, I found it far easier to surf the web or check out facebook on the smart phone than my computer. Even with my limited time I...

By Kay Heitsch on October 24, 2022 / 736 views

When our first grandchild, Noah, was born, we didn't know what to expect. We thought he would be healthy and developed like most babies. Unfortunately, however, that was not the case. Noah had a lot of health problems from the very beginning. As a result, he had several labels put on him, one being failure to thrive. We take a lot for granted when we have children, one being their...

It was the end of Summer and the cool breezes of Fall were in the air. I was a twelve year old boy: skinny, gangly, and in the midst of puberty. Before me was a truckload of wood my Dad, brother and I had unloaded the day before. Now I needed to take it one wheelbarrow load at a time around the house to where we were stacking the chopped wood into cords and covering it with tarp to keep it from getting wet. We...

Last week I was travelling to my PT session by Uber and I had the window down. Suddenly, coming up to a set of lights, a rainbow lorikeet flew IN THE WINDOW and up right to the back of the car! We stopped at the lights and I told the driver! He stopped the engine and we opened the door to try and get the poor bird out. Both of us were in shock- we weren’t sure what to do. The disorientation...

I Made The Truly Wise Decision To Do My Job

By Glory Fu on October 18, 2022 / 646 views

By Glory Fu on October 18, 2022 / 646 views

I have two options to carry out my job: calculatingly or devotedly. To do my job by calculation is to sit down, look at the numbers, and decide whether it is worthwhile to do so. If I do my job calculatingly, I'll prioritize my own benefits over the people I serve. This working attitude will definitely restrict my passion, extinguish my belief and keep me stuck. Why? Because if I don't have...

It was Autumn here in the mountains of my home. Although the morning sun was out and the sky was clear the temperature hovered just above freezing. The cold nights had accelerated the changing of the leaves too and although we were still a few weeks away from peak colors the hills looked like Heaven.

Born in 1938, to a moneylender and landlord in Mangalore, she was the youngest of 4 siblings.

My Grandpa whom she married was a complete opposite in nature; astutely scholastic Anglo-Indian who spoke fluent Portuguese and English at home. He could not understand a...
