#WATWB November 2019 Surprised by ‘Life?!’

I remember my first experience of supreme pizzas, back in the day. It was fabulous to get all of those flavoursome toppings on one pizza! (Sorry to those Italian style pizza purists who find such complicated pizzas offensive!)

Later in life I found that blessed thing called seafood paella: lots of kinds of seafood and rice all in one place! Yummo! Washed down with vino, of course!

I got that same kind of saturated sensation when I encountered this thing on ABC News Australia under the tab ‘life’.

But, let me interrupt the spiel to welcome you to

#WATWB November 2019, where our co-hosts are Damyanti Biswas,

Lizbeth Hartz,
Shilpa Garg,
Peter Nena,
and, myself,  Simon Falk.

Please head on over to their pages.

So, WATWB is all about promoting good news and I found some in that ABC News Tab called ‘life’. Check it out.

I found stories about a coffee seller who left his shop to change a lady’s car tyre.  A ‘substitute child’ who offered a lonely mother a happy Mother’s Day gift was another. 

This one has to be a favourite:

Neighbourhood love

Firefighters have been hard at it battling bushfires across Australia in recent weeks — and some are also there to help their neighbours.

“Our neighbour across the road goes out of his way to help us by mowing our grass for us on a regular basis,” says Terri Maher.

These are great stories of good news from everyday life in a neighbourhood.

  1. Hi Simon – love these stories … and we, really, are kind human beings rather more often than not. Your wild fires have been too terrible to see – I just wish you all the best as the country adapts to the trauma of so much damage. Cheers Hilary

    1. Thanks for noticing the fires here, Hilary. We’ve had fires on this land for many millennia, yet they still strike fear. Having said that, yes, these are great stories. I was most pleased to find them. Thanks for sharing in the pleasure.

  2. I love finding these stories. I appreciate your co-hosting, and the support you give WATWB, Simon. There are good people in the world, and there are good stories. I love that we’ve found a way to share them.

    1. And I love the way we’ve found a way to share them too, Dan. Isn’t it fabulous when someone collates a number of them in one place. It’s like a good story feast. Thanks for all you do on WATWB too, Dan, and in the blogsphere.

    1. Indeed they are heart warming, Susan. Thanks for being warmed by them. As for the fires, well, I need not tell a good South African like yourself of their power. You know that reality well in your land. Like yours, our people, creatures and land are resilient, but fear the fight just the same.
