With some friends, we decided to create a club for kids between 7 and 12 years. The purpose of this club is to provide comprehensive education to children, through various activities. The children also have personalized talks with a preceptor, who basically becomes a friend and role model for them whilst in the process of education. read more →

Our neighbors know that things are rough for us financially, so they save their recycling and pass it on to me so I can turn it in for a little money. I have always been grateful for that but never as much as I was on Friday. read more →

I had just sat down at the breakfast counter at the local Mom-and-Pop diner when a woman of perhaps 60 years took the seat next to me. Almost immediately her cell phone rang, and she began talking to someone who was obviously distraught. She kept trying to reassure the person that everything was going to be all right, she was just getting something to eat and she’d be on the road right away. She ended the conversation with, “See you in about 8 hours” and broke the connection with a sigh. read more →

A few weeks ago a man came into to pay for his petrol and then said he wanted to pay for number 18 as well. This is not uncommon as sometimes families fill up at the same time. read more →

Years ago my youngest daughter was invited to join a mounted horseback drill team. Soon afterward she received a phone call that another girl was being “kicked off” the team because there was an odd number of riders (need even number for drill team maneuvers). She said “NO, not fair because she was on before me…I will drop out”. So proud of her! – Carole

I am writing a short message of love for my bua ji (aunty). She is elder sister to my father and her name is Gudi Kaul. She lives in Faridabad India and I love my bua ji so much. She is close to my heart and I want to share something with you. Bua ji is having a pacemaker in her heart. My heart cries a lot and I tell mamma and papa she is very special for us so I pray for her every day. read more →

I was getting a bus recently and the driver asked if I was a child or an adult. The difference in the fare is about €2, and I could have probably passed as a child, but I decided to tell the truth and say I was an adult. The bus driver smiled and said that I was very honest and that as a reward for that he would only charge me the child fare. It was only a small thing but it really brightened up my day. – Carolina 🙂

I took a guy to hospital 70 miles away last Monday, he was a friend of my late father in law. He has no one. He had a nose bleed that wouldn’t stop. Had to go to two hospitals in the city before they would see to him. Spent whole day in hospital, then drove home. He bought me my dinner at a local hotel as a thank you, though he didn’t need too. I was delighted to be able to help him. – Brian

A waitress at our favorite restaurant was looking troubled one day. I asked what was the matter and she told me of her chronic shoulder and neck pain. I came home and mixed up a roller bottle of essential oils for muscle pain and dropped off one day asking her friend to give it to her next morning. Mother’s Day when hubby took me to breakfast, my waitress friend came over so thrilled that the oils helped relieve her pain! – Pat

When I was at school, there was a program in 9th, 10th and 11th grade in which the students had to do some social service. When I was going to do my service for the first time, I was very excited but also scared for all the new experiences I would pass through. read more →
