By A Friend on January 30, 2019 / 1,400 views

Someone drove 10 miles to deliver my purse home 2 days after I lost it. They didn’t take any of the money from it, and didn’t leave a name so I can’t thank them properly. So whoever you are, you are pretty hecking...

When I was in high school I remember just having a bad day. (Looking back on it as an adult I suffer from depression and it probably was related). I went to boarding school up north and I was in my 3rd period science class. I don't what set me off, but I just bursted out crying. I got up and left the classroom, my teacher saw me but didn't try to stop me. Later that afternoon I...

I don't often eat lunch at work, and tend to just work through the day and eat dinner when I get home. I was having a bad day, it was around 4pm and I was struggling to make things happen. My boss, a wonderful lady, saw this and said "you ok?”. I said yeah, I'm just struggling a little right now because of x, y, and z. Then she did something that shocked me, she said...

This Message From A Dog Owner To His Best Friend

I've had you since you were a month old and didn’t have any teeth. I remember the sleepless nights during the first few weeks. How I had to turn your puppy food into mush with milk. How I'd make a perfect little cozy bed for you, but you'd snuggle into me, falling asleep. How we grew up learning how to communicate with each other without a single word being spoken. I wonder where the 13 years...

Miracles come in moments. Sometimes they save our lives. Sometimes they change our lives. Sometimes they offer us insight. And sometimes they give us a gentle reminder and the strength to go on. The scene of this minor miracle takes place in the living room of my house under an old, broken ceiling fan with a little glass angel hanging from its pull string. My youngest son has a severe form of...

By A Friend on January 21, 2019 / 2,498 views

My neighbor is a paramedic, him and his wife are some of the nicest people I have ever met. A few years back we started this sort of "favour war" where one of us would do something for the other, such as shovel their driveway or help them build a shed, and next time the other would try to top it with another favour. Yesterday morning there was maybe 2 or 3 feet of snow on the ground (we live in a...

Strangers Helping Me Out

By A Friend on January 19, 2019 / 1,683 views

So, this happened just few minutes ago. I'm currently visiting Rome and had to go somewhere by metro. Unfortunately, I didn't realise that the machine doesn't take notes or cards, and I didn't have any change on my. So, I asked a British couple passing by if they could split a 10. They literally took 5 minutes to scrap whatever change they had to pay for my ticket. If you guys are...

I am a 27 year old trying to go back to college after a long break from any formal schooling. I am taking a college algebra class and struggling to keep up. I sit behind a young man who upon first glance looks like a thug or overall someone I would never think would be able to help me learn algebra. I was dead wrong. Today in class we were learning linear regression which requires a lot of specific inputs on a...

Homeless Guy Gave Me What He Could

By A Friend on January 19, 2019 / 1,813 views

I gave a young homeless guy a couple of quid in Glasgow. I don't normally give money but it was just what I had in my pocket and there was something about this dude that just looked sad. Got chatting for a wee while and he told me about his days and nights - someone had soaked his sleeping bag on purpose and he'd spent the morning trying to dry it under the hand-dryer in...

By Ellie on January 19, 2019 / 1,403 views

My boss was shadowing me at the register on my first day, and things were going okay but I was pretty nervous with her watching over my shoulder. Midway through my shift a customer comes up and recognises me from my previous job. I can’t remember her for the life of me, so I have no idea if our previous interaction(s) had been good, bad, or other. Lucky me, though, because she launches into a...

By A Friend on January 18, 2019 / 1,608 views

I hope you find it in you to forgive yourself for not having known how to cope with the world better. For being selfish, for hurting others while you were hurting. For making rash decisions because of temporary feelings that left permanent consequences. For subconsciously putting yourself through hard times because you thought you deserved it. For not giving your 100% in everything you did. For not having...

After a failed marriage, the loss of all of my friends, depression, opioid, sleeping pill, and alcohol addiction, not working for four years, and sending out over 200 resumes in the last five months - - today I got a $60,000/year job in my field of a study.

I live in an area that recently got a good amount of snow. Here I am, sitting on my couch watching YouTube when I get a knock on my door. Expecting an Amazon package, I look out the window but I don’t see a delivery vehicle. I’m not dressed to answer the door so I scramble to get dressed and answer the door. Standing outside is a man with a heavy coat, gloves, and a hat and he asks me...

I remember ripping the bag open so badly, and so wrong, and not wanting to get caught by my mother, or my siblings. Whoever did that to the cereal bags in my home, didn't stop hearing that they ruined it, till the bag was finished. Some fell to the ground, kitchen sink, our dogs even sometimes got lucky with a few pieces of cereal in their bowls. Just when you think all that mess is done, you...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on January 07, 2019 / 1,946 views

Whoosh! A snowball zoomed past my head. I bent over a snowdrift and packed one myself to throw back as quickly as I could. I stood up and took aim. Wham! Another snowball crashed into my skull sending me stumbling into the snowdrift. I could feel my feet slipping on the ice beneath them and suddenly found myself buried face first in the wet, heavy snow. It was a mid-winter's day. My Mom had...
