Quote Of The Day

By A Friend on March 03, 2020 / 1,290 views

In the mall I have noticed a black board at the entrance, each time I see it there is a positive/inspirational quote written neatly on it. The quotes themselves bring me peace and joy. The world can seem so chaotic and frightening, people rush through life barely giving anything a second thought. So the fact someone takes time out of their own day to uplift mine and others is a really...

Three weeks ago, we were paycheck to paycheck. Our bank accounts were always empty. We survived on my husbands (40/m) job and my (34/f) disability. We have kids. Also, at the same time, I was experiencing a terrible cyst on my neck that was leaving me bed bound in excruciating pain but the surgery was going to be $8,000 cash, out of pocket, because Medicare only covers 80%. So on the day...

Once a teacher was passing through the corridor of the school after finishing her teaching in the class. While coming, one of the care takers of the school who was very friendly to that teacher wished to talk to her. The care taker said, ‘Miss, I want to tell you something.’ ‘Of course, you can. What do you want to tell me?’ ‘I have observed you from the day...

I'm An Old Married Dude, And I'm Getting Adopted

My dad is the only "dad" I have known for my entire life. He and my mom got married when I was 1, and as such I even have his last name. Things were easier in the past (especially in a small town), so all my ID, bills, legal documents, even my social security and DD214 have his last name. He taught me to hunt, fish, build things, and how to be a good husband and father. He gave me my work...

Kindness Of Strangers

I broke my elbow last year and for a good few months I couldn't move my arm at all. I still can't move it properly. However until I got some decent slip on shoes I occasionally had to ask random people to retie my laces. I never had anyone turn me down. It really reinforced my faith in humanity. At one stage I'd taken myself on holiday to stop from going stir crazy, and there...

There are many times we do this in our lives, even if its at an unconsciousness level. For example, a friend of my was deeply conflicted over religion and going to church. It just didn't resonate with him. He didnt feel any spiritual growth from committing to his religion, but he did so because he grew up with that and his parents were deeply religious. I encouraged him to maybe leave the church...

Faith In Humanity Restored After An Unfortunate Accident

I’m going through it right now. Last night one of our 3 family dogs was hit and killed by a car in front of my mother’s house. The dogs became, more or less, my mother’s surrogate children after her human children grew up and moved out and my father ran with a midlife crisis and left her. The one that was killed had bonded with my mom far more than the others. She is devastated. I...

Once, a middle aged man took his eighty years old father to the park. His father used a stick for walking. While the old man stepped out from the car, his stick fell down, and he lost his balance. But, immediately before falling, his son gripped his hand tightly, and saved him. The old man smiled at his son gratefully. The son said, 'Papa put that stick aside. I will support you for...

One of my favorite moments in life happened last year. My boss and I were at this convention/fair for people with developmental disabilities to recruit parents of kids on the spectrum to participate in a study. My boss is talking to this lovely couple, I approach them and stand nearby as they’re speaking. The couple’s son - possibly early teens - comes and stands near the...

Don't Worry About What You'll Be Doing In 20 Years, Worry About How To Make Tomorrow A Better Day Than Today

There's a saying that really stuck with me from a random monk who lived 900 years ago: When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my...

Well today it happened… A day we never want to happen, but continually prepare for throughout the school year. We had a tornado touch down near the school, and as expected, went into our emergency tornado procedures. I wasn’t even in the classroom when it happened. I had taken a student with me to the workroom to help gather items for a project. When the sirens starting wailing I immediately...

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high...into that heaven of freedom my Father, let my country awake", as this famous quote of Rabindranath Tagore ran through her head, her mind stopped at the word "Freedom". That one precious word for which she had so longed for all her life. As the raindrops splattered across the window and raced one after the other, she realized that...

Another Day

It was a cold, Winter morning. I hadn’t slept very well the night before so I was trying to catch a few extra winks before I got up. The rising sun had other ideas, however. A beam of it snuck through my drawn curtains and started poking my eyelids until they wearily opened. I groaned and sat up on the side of the bed. I put my feet on the floor careful not to step on my gassy, old, snoring beagle who...

This Is Not Our Cat

This is not our cat. We installed a cat door in our shed. Our new neighbors rarely let their cat in even when it is freezing cold outside. We've spoken to them twice, nicely, and they are not concerned. So we are helping our cat bro out by giving him access to our...

A Deer In The Road

I live in the mountains of West Virginia. The curvy, winding roads and the vast woodlands often lead to near misses with the local deer. The other day I was driving my son to work at the sheltered workshop when we saw a deer in the road that hadn’t been so lucky. The driver in front of me suddenly swerved to avoid hitting the corpse and I quickly followed him jerking the steering wheel to get back in the...

Turkeys Get Funky

We were blasting music on our Amazon Echo when a family of turkeys came out of the woods and started dancing. "Look! Look!" my sister shrieked, pointing out the window. And sure enough, the turkeys had started jumping and stomping and occasionally squawking along with the music. I guess turkeys like the song...

I just found our 5 year old sitting on a chair in our garage. The door was open and he was sitting, staring at the pounding rain outside. So now I am too. Life can wait. I'm watching the rain with my...
