By A Friend on September 15, 2018 / 1,392 views

I was outside eating a cookie and saw about 5 ants just roaming around on top of the steps. I noticed there was only one ant that wasn't holding anything like the other 4 were holding dorito bits or something and the ant seemed sad. It wasn't even going at the same pace as the other ants. So I put a cookie crumb next to him and he picked it up and started running as fast as the other ants and I think I...

I recently noticed that whenever life was getting me down, I'd usually find a dollar in my pocket the next day. I told my parents how weird it was and they told me my little sister puts a dollar in one of my pockets when she knows I'm sad to help cheer me up and now I'm...

My brother is a Boy Scout, and was selling popcorn tonight. Not long after he and my dad got set up to sell, a guy came up to them to say, "I don’t want any popcorn, but I want you to get sales, and I want to be a blessing for someone. I'm going to give you $100. I want you give away $100 of popcorn to people who come up." Apparently the people that they gave the...

As I am on my way going to see my landlady last Saturday, I saw a beautiful garden with many well grown yam plants. The broad surfaces of the leaves of the yam plants and the heights of the yam shoots climbed and spread over tall trees attracted me to look at the plants without making any movement. While picturing the plants, this question came through my mind, "why yam leaves which were very common to me...

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...

The gentleman who it belonged to happen to be celebrating his birthday that same day. I was able to mail him his wallet. A few weeks later I receive this. "Jamie, I can’t tell you how fortunate I felt that our paths crossed when they did. It is so rare...
