Today, when you told me you lost your virginity to a one night stand, I thought about when we were 17 and you told me that kissing someone you don't love is disgusting. MMT

Today, my son and I went to the local bakery to buy fresh bread. He usually asks me for one oatmeal cookie, but today he asked me for three. They only cost 25 cents, so I didn’t think too much of it. I assumed he wanted to bring a couple home, but on our walk home, my son took the other two cookies and handed them to two homeless men he pointed out to me on our way to the bakery. MMT

Today is the one-year anniversary the night my whole life changed… the night when surgeon walked into the waiting area, looked at my daughter and me and said, “I’m really sorry. He didn’t make it.” MMT

Today, we had a blind man at our ice skating rink skating at a fairly decent speed around the skating rink. He kept one hand extended out just barely grazing the outer wall and a walking stick in the other hand extended forward. When I asked him if he skated often, he said, “Not since I was a kid… and I used to love to skate. I just put all this together yesterday, which is why I’m here today.” MMT

Today, a lady I taught ten years ago during her senior year of high school, who is now a well known local surgeon, came into my classroom in the middle of a lesson, gave me a note, and walked back out. The note said, "I was here today helping students in the same way you helped me. Thanks for helping me figure out my future." MMT

Today, I witnessed a pretty bad car accident. Immediately following the collision, the woman who was rear-ended, and not at fault, jumped out of her car, and instead of screaming at the other driver, ran to his window and said, “Are you OK? Is everyone OK?” MMT

Today, I lay in bed with tears falling onto my pillow. Two days ago I was in a serious car accident for the second time in four years. The one person who got me through last time is on another continent and has no idea about any of it. Although the accident was the other driver's fault, the police say they can't prove she ran the red light. This time, I don't have anyone to tell me everything will be okay. Will it? MMT

Today, it's been almost four years since you betrayed me. I don't miss you anymore; but now that I'm home again, you have a sudden interest in my life. I'm suspicious about your motives, and I really don't trust you. When we were friends, we talked about how we'd be friends forever. Your betrayal taught me that you aren't worth my time or emotions anymore. How life changes, and the ability to adapt to those changes, will always MMT.

Today, I'm the happiest I've ever been thanks to being fired a couple years ago, getting dumped by my ex, and then being forced to move back in with my parents for awhile in my hometown... because that’s where I met the love of my love of my life--who's now my fiancé--and now I also have an amazing job working with two of my close friends. MMT

Today, I found out my high school crush started a new relationship after she moved away for college. I was always afraid to ask her out due to me being overweight and not the "athletic type", figuring she wouldn't want anything to do with me. Her new boyfriend is overweight, and even bigger than me.

Today, after a phone conversation with my wife about love, I felt compelled to use Google to find and read some short stories about love. The third link lead me to 60 selected stories from this site. I enjoyed each and every story so much that I decided to tell my wife about them. When I got home from work, as I started telling her about my discovery, she hugged me and told me she had randomly Googled “short love stories” this morning too and found read the same stories, all by herself.

Today my little brother, a burn victim with scars that cover the entire left side of his face, informed me that he wanted to ask last year’s homecoming queen out on a date. I thought he was crazy. But she said yes, and they went out on the date and have a second date scheduled already. MMT

Today, a deaf man came to my store to order a pizza. He handed me a note letting me know that he cannot hear. After exchanging the paper various times so I could place his order, his final note to me was, "You are so kind and so beautiful, inside and out. Thank you for being patient and accepting of my condition. I've been too afraid to come here for over a year now. I bet your voice is as beautiful as your personality." MMT

Today I woke up around 2am contemplating how my life would be different if I were to take the advice that I would give someone else who was in my position. The truth is that I would not be where I am in life at all if I took my own advice, but I am afraid of the possibilities of the unknown and the fact that I may be even unhappier if I were to do what I think is the right thing to do. Knowing what I should do and not doing anything at all, MMT.

Today after a year and a half of recovery of anorexia nervosa and depression I have my last appointment before leaving for college. Back then I could barely walk up stairs without running out of breath. Now I can walk across a campus. My family and friends' support and love, even when I refused it, MMT.

Today, I was thinking how my 7th grade Social Studies teacher had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and how he was the best teacher I've ever had. When the holiday season came along, he always sent a notice to all the parents, asking that any money being put towards gifts for him be instead donated to charity. MMT
