On July 5th my little dog Milo escaped the fenced yard of a friend in Vancouver and ran off. We suspect he heard day after the 4th fireworks. He ran for miles all the way to the I-5 northbound freeway ramp and was running in and out of traffic on the freeway. A young couple spent several hours chasing him down by car and on foot, rescued him and called me after noting my phone number on his collar....

My Aunt Carmeleta was the wife of my mother's youngest brother Fred. Even though my Uncle Fred died many years ago and Aunt Carmeleta is now married to Ken I still consider her my aunt. Everyone should have a wonderful aunt like Aunt Carmeleta. I lived with her and my Uncle Fred for a year when I was a teenager. Like a lot of teenagers, I had issues with people who talked negatively about me. If...

The Business Man

My wife was homeless as a teenager. On Friday afternoons, a "business man" would walk up to her and ask her if she was hungry. She would say yes, and he would take her into the restaurant on the corner. She never felt any danger with him (and she has had to cut somebody badly before). He was just some dude offering her a meal. He would let her get anything in the menu. He would...

I saw the most beautiful thing ever one morning. It was early with a slight frost on the ground, and I was walking on dewy grass down to the horse paddocks - my mind on the days chores. Suddenly a blazing laser flash erupted straight from the ground about 15 feet in front of me, and shot up into the sky. It was so brilliant, clear and clean, it literally topped me in my tracks. I thought the only...

Just Breathe And Have Faith

By Kay Heitsch on July 10, 2019 / 1,267 views

I had to put the following quote into practice 25 years ago when I was asked to read 1 Corinthians 13 at my precious friend Evy's wedding. "Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess, just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best." You may wonder why on earth would reading 1 Corinthians 13 be so difficult?...

Have you ever been completely alone? Have you ever walked for hours on end with no goal in mind? Have you ever attempted to become better for yourself? If you have never done any of these things you have yet to experience a totally different style of life. In our world people are never alone because of these little things called the internet. You can have thousands of friends that you have never met...

Unselfish Heart

Today I posted a picture of our 8-year-old grandson, Eli, running in a race on Facebook. I tagged a friend, Andrew, to make sure he saw it. There was a reason why Andrew was tagged and I'd like to share the reason why. Our son Todd died suddenly in a car accident at the age of 16. Todd had been a cross country runner in high school with Andrew and they had become friends. The day of...

A Single Butterfly

It was a sweltering Spring day. The temperatures felt more like July than May. A thunderstorm had passed over earlier but now the clouds were clearing and the sun had returned. Steam was coming off the wet sidewalk as I parked my car next to the meter and tossed a quarter into it. I headed into the local thrift store to buy my son a shirt. The air conditioning in there was a welcome relief from the heat...

To The Family Who Sat Behind Us...

Thank you. I’m a young, black, gay guy in Alabama who walked into a Waffle House with a much older white guy. You could tell from how much we were laughing and smiling at each other that we were into each other. So what did you do? You left us a note thanking us for being who we are and paid for our meal. You have no idea how much that small act of...

A Multiplier

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 01, 2019 / 1,349 views

I don't remember exactly what grade I was in when it happened. All I remember is that suddenly Math was no longer fun. Since the first grade I had always loved Math. I was a wiz at adding and subtracting. I got 100 percent on almost every paper I did. All at once, though, we were doing something called multiplication and I was no good at it. I struggled on my first few worksheets until the teacher gave us...

Regardless of where you are in life, who you are, what you've done, and how you feel about yourself, it's never too late to have your Day 1 and start fresh.. As the title says, your future is a clean slate. Even if you think you've lived a 1/10 life so far, you can put 10/10 effort going forward and see a huge difference from where you are right now.

Optimism

By A Friend on June 28, 2019 / 1,186 views

Optimism isn't believing everything is great, it's believing that there is always will be a reason to be happy. People wonder why I'm so happy all the time and take things in stride. I'm an optimist through and through. I don't just think everything is awesome. I have bad days like everyone else. However I always believe there will be...

Regret

By Ed on June 25, 2019 / 1,339 views

Most things aren't nearly as bad as you think they'll be -- except regret. Regret is worse. Often we procrastinate or straight up don't do things that we know we need to do because we're afraid of discomfort. We're scared to take a risk or do something that we've never done before. So we don't do it. I can tell you from experience that...

I Got A Compliment Today On A Thing That I Am Insecure About And It Feels Amazing!

By A Friend on June 24, 2019 / 1,374 views

I am a dark skinned girl living in a country which places white skinned people on a pedestal and looks down on people with even slightly dark skin tone. Since I am very dark skinned, I tend to avoid wearing bright colors like white and yellow because they make me look even more darker. However, I wore a white blouse today which I bought because it was so pretty that I just couldn't...

After I graduated from the university, I got so pressured in finding a job. I did a lot of applications both online and handing in person to a particular company. It occurred, one day I went to hand in my CV to a certain company and I wanted to meet the Human resource manager in person because I believed it was the best option than leaving my CV at the reception. Unfortunately, in this company the...

The other day, I was travelling on an app-based cab. My daughter was accompanying me. It was hot and humid. We stopped at the traffic signal. Suddenly, there was a tap on the window. A homeless man was standing outside in the heat. His hands were crooked and shaking. He could not speak properly but explained in both signs as well as some unintelligible words that he was very thirsty and wanted some...

Strangers On A Plane Help Anxious Passenger

People are good. Today on my flight to Denver, the pilot announced that they were expecting some turbulence as we descended. A woman in the rear of the plane was afraid of flying and became very anxious after this announcement. The flight attendant re-seated her in the front where it’s usually less bumpy. She sat in a middle seat across from me. The strangers on each side of her...
