Swap & Trade Books, Trade Music, Trade Video Games, DVD & Movie - Swaptree.com

Get something for nothing has always been a feel good way of aquiring new stuff. It's a green concept for sure. You dig out all the crap that you don't want or use anymore and trade it for "new stuff" that you will eventually kick to the curb and trade for more "new stuff"...isn't that cool?! This site is a great place to start in the online swapping world. With the economy in the crapper, this idea is really taking off and I think it's a win win. I don't get to say "win win" very often and it makes me feel good so I'm gonna say it again...it's a win win guys! Check out the site and see what you think. Later I will talk about a swapping site just for books. I was thinking about starting a blog just for books so I've been on the fence but I'll post it anyway (cuz I like you).

SMILE

I know this post isn't about discounts but sometimes I feel the need to share just cuz....




Breakfast at McDonalds


I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my college degree.

The last class I had to take was Sociology. 

The teacher was absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every human being had been graced with. 

Her last project of the term was called, 'Smile.' 

The class was asked to go out and smile at three people and document their reactions.. 

I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello anyway. So, I thought this would be a piece of cake, 

literally..... 


Soon after we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went out to McDonald's one crisp March morning. 

It was just our way of sharing special playtime with our son. 

We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden everyone around us began to back away, and then even my husband did. 

I did not move an inch... an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of me as I turned to see why they had moved. 
As I turned around I smelled a horrible 'dirty body' smell, and there standing behind me were two poor homeless men. 

As I looked down at the short gentleman, close to me, he was 'smiling'

His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God's Light as he searched for acceptance. 

He said, 'Good day' as he counted the few coins he had been clutching.. 

The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his friend. I realized the second man was mentally challenged and the blue-eyed gentleman was his salvation..... 

I held my tears as I stood there with them. 

The young lady at the counter asked him what they wanted. 

He said, 'Coffee is all Miss' because that was all they could afford.. (If they wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up, they had to buy something. He just wanted to be warm). 

Then I really felt it - the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and embraced the little man with the blue eyes. 

That is when I noticed all eyes in the 
restaurant were set on me, judging 
my every action. 


I smiled and asked the young lady behind the counter to give me two more breakfast meals on a separate tray. 

I then walked around the corner to the table that the men had chosen as a resting spot. I put the tray on the table and laid my hand on the blue-eyed gentleman's cold hand. 

He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and said, 'Thank you.' 

I leaned over, began to pat his hand and said, 'I did not do this for you. God is here working through me to give you hope.' 

I started to cry as I walked away to join my husband and son. When I sat down my husband smiled at me and said, 'That is why God gave you to me, Honey, to give me hope..

We held hands for a moment and at that time, we knew that only because of the Grace that we had been given were we able to give. 

We are not church goers, but we are believers..... 

That day showed me the pure Light of God's sweet love. 

I returned to college, on the last evening of class, with this story in hand. 

I turned in 'my project' and the instructor read it. 


Then she looked up at me and said, 'Can I share this?' 



I slowly nodded as she got the attention of the class. 

She began to read and that is when I knew that we as human beings and being part of God share this need to heal people and to be healed. 

In my own way I had touched the people at McDonald's, my son,the instructor, and every soul that shared the classroom on the last night I spent as a college student. 

I graduated with one of the biggest lessons I would ever learn: 

UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE. 

Much love and compassion is sent to each and every person who may read this and learn how to 

LOVE PEOPLE AND USE THINGS - 

NOT LOVE THINGS AND USE PEOPLE.

This was sent to me by email and I wanted to share it with you.  Smile at someone today.
