Story time!!!! So, I was shopping and I got, one One Direction poster I never had. And then a 1D book and an Adventure Time poster. As I checked out, a girl said, boys can't be directioners. I wanted to turn around and laugh in her face. She was like 15. But I turned to her mom and said she needed to tame her daughter. XD I need a life xD by nicole

I am just so excited! I just got back from Bible study and found out the person I met 4 months ago came to accept Jesus as her Savior.  I had one encounter with this person and never ran into her again.  She was really depressed.  I talked with her about Jesus (She wasn't a Christian).  I offered to take her to my church just so she could see what it was like.  She said she wouldn't know anybody but I said "you know me!" Just show love!! Also by rosanna

The Whale… If you read a recent front page story of the San Francisco Chronicle, you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same. by Paki Maui

"A staff member of my local Planned Parenthood told me a story about a woman who had 15 abortions. Her partner was abusive and wouldn’t let her use birth control at all, but she was able to sneak away from him for long enough to get an abortion every time she got pregnant. Eventually she was able to leave him and now has kids of her own with a much better partner. No ill effects from having that many abortions at all. Trust women* to make their own decisions, you don’t know their situation." by kari

"Can I Get a Witness?"  Several years ago, my niece Katherine Grace was on the beach with her friend, Myra Rivers, when they met a girl their age. While talking about Vacation Bible School, they asked their new acquaintance if she believed in Jesus. When the girl said she didn't, Katherine Grace and Myra Rivers got to work.  A while later Myra Rivers’s mom came down to check on them. When she saw her Bible - normally in the condo - sitting on the beach, she asked the girls why it was there. by christine

Exactly. My friend whom had moved years ago was coming back to town for a visit, and I was extremely excited to see her again. I had arranged to meet up with her, and when I got there I was so super prepared to talk about so many things, but it didn't go as planned.... Over the years she had changed her appearance AND personality, and the conversation was short and awkward. Oh well. by maureen

When I think Plants and Coffee, I'm instantly reminded of my grandmother. She was one classy lady and she loved her houseplants and roses almost as much as her afternoon coffee. My grandmother always prescribed a robust cup of coffee for any ailment (kinda like Windex in My Big Fat Greek Wedding)!

Things narcissists do! One of the ones I never understood was lying about nothing, just for the sake of lying or worse, lying and telling me something that he KNEW would hurt me, like telling me he had slept with a woman he hadn't just to get a narcissistic fix off of my pain. He always lied and said he hadn't slept with the women he actually HAD slept with! He is truly disturbed! by ZaraFee

Hey!!! I've had 3 Chi's and they didn't always bark. Oscar Elvis was an angel, had him 19 years. Mimma, my poor baby, was only in this earth a year, but she was beautiful and sweet and quiet. Then, I was given her sister, won I renamed, Luna, and she was a good, baby. She'd been abused, so was distrustful and sometimes bit when she didn't mean too, I loved her. She barked a lot at first, but I taught her it was the TV. Lol, she always quieted at that. I miss you, babies. You'd ♥ Gia and Milena. by hillary
