    Breakfast @ McDonalds
    Take the time to read this one.
     
     
     
    A Return is Requested….You'll see why.

    Breakfast at McDonald's

    This is a good story and is true, please read it all the way through until the end! (After the St or y, there are some very interesting facts!):

    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 f or 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.

    There is an Angel sent to watch over you.

    In order for her to work, you must pass this on to the people you want watched over.

    An Angel wrote:

    Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart

    To handle yourself, use your head..

    To handle others, use your heart.

    God Gives every bird it's food, but He does not throw it into its nest.

    Send it back, you'll see why!

    A box of gold

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    With a secret inside

    that has never been told

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    This box is priceless

    but as I see

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    The treasure inside is


    precious to me

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    Today I share this

    treasure with thee

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    It's the treasure of

    friendship you've


    given me.

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    If this comes back to you


    then you'll have a friend


    for life but, if this

    becomes deleted, you are


    not a friend.

    Send this to everyone you

    consider a friend!


    It will grant you one wish and only one wish,

    that is, if you decide to send this to others. You can wish for anything.

    Repeat your wish until you have stopped scrolling. Make it count!

    FOR YOUR WISH TO COME TRUE YOU HAVE TO SEND IT TO:

    3 PEOPLE – YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE EVENTUALLY

    5 PEOPLE – YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE IN 3 MONTHS

    10 PEOPLE – YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE IN 5 WEEKS

    15 PEOPLE – YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE IN 1 WEEK

    CAN'T WAIT A WEEK???

    22 People-Your Wish Will

    Come True In 1 Day!

    ****** **********REMEMBER**************

    THIS MUST BE SENT OUT THE

    DAY YOU READ IT FOR

    YOU TO GET YOUR WISH

    Subject: FW: Why Athletes Can't Have Regular Jobs

    These are samples of the American education system.
    And tax payers are asked to give more to the schools. 
    Somewhere there is a disconnect.  BA

    Subj:  WHY ATHLETES CAN'T HAVE REGULAR JOBS


    1. Chicago Cubs Outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model:
    "I WAN' ALL DEM KIDS TO DO WHAT I DO, TO LOOK UP TO ME. I WAN' ALL THE
    KIDS TO COPULATE ME."

    2. New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming
    season:
    "I WANT TO RUSH FOR 1,000 OR 1,500 YARDS, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST.."

    3. And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skin's say:
    "I'd run over my own mother to win the Super Bowl,"
    Matt Millen of the Raiders said: "To win, I'd run over Joe's Mom, too."

    4. Torrin Polk, University of Houston receiver, on his coach, John
    Jenkins:
    "HE TREAT US LIKE MENS. HE LET US WEAR EARRINGS.."

    5. Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann:
    "NOBODY IN FOOTBALL SHOULD BE CALLED A GENIUS. A GENIUS IS A GUY LIKE
    NORMAN EINSTEIN."

    6. Senior basketball player at the University of Pittsburgh :
    "I'M GOING TO GRADUATE ON TIME, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES.."
    (Now that is beautiful)

    7. Bill Peterson, a Florida State football coach:
    "You guys line up alphabetically by height.."
    And, "You guys pair up in groups of three, and then line up in a
    circle."

    8. Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson going to prison:
    "WHY WOULD ANYONE EXPECT HIM TO COME OUT SMARTER? HE WENT TO PRISON FOR
    THREE YEARS, NOT PRINCETON .."

    9. Stu Grimson, Chicago Blackhawks left wing, explaining why he keeps a
    color photo of himself above his locker:
    "THAT'S SO WHEN I FORGET HOW TO SPELL MY NAME, I CAN STILL FIND MY
    CLOTHES."

    10. Lou Duva, veteran boxing trainer, on the Spartan training regimen
    of heavyweight Andrew Golota:
    "HE'S A GUY WHO GETS UP AT SIX O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING, REGARDLESS OF
    WHAT TIME IT IS."

    11. Chuck Nevitt , North Carolina State basketball player, explaining
    to Coach Jim Valvano why he appeared nervous at practice:
    "MY SISTER'S EXPECTING A BABY, AND I DON'T KNOW IF I'M GOING TO BE AN
    UNCLE OR AN AUNT. (I wonder if his IQ ever hit room temperature in
    January)

    12. Frank Layden , Utah Jazz president, on a former player:
    "I asked him, 'Son, what is it with you? Is it ignorance or apathy?'
    He said, 'Coach, I don't know and I don't care.'"

    13. Shelby Metcalf, basketball coach at Texas A&M, recounting what he
    told a player who received four F's and one D:
    "SON, LOOKS TO ME LIKE YOU'RE SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON ONE SUBJECT."

    14. In the words of NC State great Charles Shackelford:
    "I CAN GO TO MY LEFT OR RIGHT, I AM AMPHIBIOUS."

    15. Former Houston Oilers coach Bum Phillips when asked by Bob Costas
    why he takes his wife on all the road trips,
    PHILLIPS RESPONDED: "BECAUSE SHE'S TOO UGLY TO KISS GOOD-BYE."

    Happy Thanksgiving – Look up

    THE BUZZARD:

    Image001

    If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8
    feet and is entirely open at the top, the
    bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will
    be an absolute prisoner. The reason is
    That a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground
    with a Run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space
    to run, as is its habit, It will not even
    attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner
    for life in a small jail with no top.

    THE BAT:

    Image002


    The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a
    remarkable nimble creature in the air,
    cannot take off from a level place.
    If it is placed on the floor or flat
    ground, all it can do is shuffle about
    helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it
    reaches some slight elevation from which it can
    throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it
    takes off like a flash.

    THE BUMBLEBEE:

    Image003


    A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will
    be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
    It never sees the means of escape at the
    top, but persists in trying to find some way out
    through the sides near the bottom.. It
    will seek a way where none exists, until it
    completely destroys itself..

    PEOPLE:

    Image004


    In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and
    the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our
    problems and frustrations, never realizing that
    all we have to do is look up! That's the
    Answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! Just look up.

    Image005

    Sorrow looks back,

    Worry looks around,

    But faith looks up!

    Live simply,

    love generously,

    care deeply,

    speak kindly

    and trust in our Creator who loves us.

    SEND THIS TO LOVED ONES / FRIENDS …..

    I just did !!

    POLISH PEOPLE ARE GREAT 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Georgiana 
    Date: 22 November 2011 04:18
    Subject: FW: POLISH PEOPLE ARE GREAT

     

      POLISH PEOPLE ARE GREAT

    You call your grandma "babcia" or "busia" and your grandpa "dziadzia." 

    You know how to dance the polka, but you only do it at weddings after kicking back a few generous shots of vodka or a few highballs.

    You like to drink. Especially beer. Especially cheap beer.

    When frustrated, you slap your forehead, shake your head, and say "O Jezu Marija!"

    You have one grandma that wears a babushka and galoshes every single day of the year and another grandma tha t wears a lot of jewelry and too much make-up.

    If you come from Chicago, Buffalo, Cleveland, Hamtramck, or Milwaukee there is a large church called "Saint Stanislaus," or "Saint Hedwig," within one block of your childhood home (that is, unless you're one of
    those suburban exiles, in which case the church is within one block of your babcia's house!)

    The neighorhood you grew up in is called "Little Warsaw," "Slavic Village," "Polish Hill," or something of that sort. You like to celebrate St. Patrick's Day but only because "the Irish are oppressed too"!

    Your knowledge of the Polish language is limited to 'naughty' words (e.g. dupa, gowno, gatki, etc.); names for food (e.g. pierogi, kapusta, etc.); and drinking toasts (e.g. nazdrowie, sto lat, etc.).

    You occasionally add the suffix "ski" to English words for no apparent reason (e.g. "I'm gonna go put the car-ski in the garage-ski"). [If you also happen to know a few basic conversational phrases in Polish you are considered "old school" by friends and relatives.]

    You have a grandma who uses every single part of animal carcasses to make sausages, soups, dumplings, etc.


    You have at least one uncle named "Stan," or "Stas."

    You have at least one relative who works, or used to work, for the Big Three.

    Your relatives devotion to saints, the Blessed Virgin, the Pope, the Democratic Party, the U.S. Steelworkers, etc.

    Your grandma has a shrine complete with votive candles and a picture of the "Our Lady of Czestochowa" or "Infant of Prague."

    Your parents have at least one crucifix or religious picture mounted on a wall in their house with palms tucked behind it.

    Your grandparents and other relatives habitually kiss everyone they meet.

    You refer to your two dozen or so cousins by childhood nicknames (e.g. Stannie, Nicky, Louie, Joey, Chickie, Honey, etc.) irrespective of their ages.

    You refer to grandparents and aunts by pet names (e.g. Aunt Honey, Aunt Chickie, Grandpa Jo-Jo, etc.).

    You regularly attend Friday fish fries, harvest festivals, parish festivals, Vegas nights, and/or Bingo.

    You bowl regularly and/or on a team sponsored by a local bar.

    You get your food blessed at Easter and your house blessed at Christmas time.

    Your family has a wigilia meal on Christmas Eve at which you share oplatki.

    You like to put sour cream, horseradish, and/or beer on everything you eat.

    Your family likes to play card games like hearts and pinochle, and this often culminates in full-scale brawls.

    You always prefer rye bread to white or wheat.

    Your dad has forced you to eat horseradish, claiming that it will "put hair on your chest" (even If you're a female!).

    You like to go "mushroom hunting."

    People in your family have their wedding receptions at places called "Polish Legion Hall," "Sacred Heart Center," etc.

    You know the words to "Sto Lat" and sing it at all birthday parties.

    You can out-drink all of your friends.

    You have waited in line at a church or bakery to buy pierogi or paczki.

    You frequently add "dere" (there) and/or "ya know" to the end of sentences. Words like kiszka, kielbasa, and kolaczki actually mean something to you.

    You know the difference between Czechs, Slovaks, and Slovenes, and you think they're all inferior to Poles despite the numerous glaring similarities.

    You used to get a day off from school on Saint Joseph's Day (March 19).

    You actually know who Kosciuszko and Pulaski are and why they're important.

    You have at least one relative who plays the accordion.

    You are inclined to blame all the world's ills on Germans and Russians.

    You have an easier time getting along with Irishmen and Italians than with non-Polish Slavs.

    You're either completely overdressed or completely underdressed for every occasion.

    If you're a woman, you wear make-up at all times – even if it's 90 degrees outside and you're 88 years old.

    Your idea of "healthy" is boiled pierogi, light beer, and filtered cigarettes.

    You walk into a crowd of people you don't know and talk to them like they're your best friends in the whole world.

    You hoard vast amounts of money in your house.

    You have at least one bar in your house – usually in the basement.

    Your family always has an excuse to hold a "poprawinie" – e.g. when someone dies, or when someone gets married.

    You've never been to Poland, but you have mysterious relatives there to whom you send gifts and money every Christmas.

    Your front yard is filled with lawn ornaments – e.g. pink flamingos, jockey, Mary in the halfshell, etc.

    You have relatives who are priests and nuns.

    You collect "prayer cards" from funerals.

    You or someone in your family owns highly outdated Dodge or Plymouth.

    You regularly attend Mass but spend most of the ceremony sleeping and/or looking at the parish bulletin.

    You haven't been a practicing Catholic for years but everyone in your family insists that it's "just a phase."

    You often visit cemeteries, light votive candles for dead relatives, and generally spend an unhealthy amount of time obsessing about death.

    You like to gossip and generally talk too much.

    People often have trouble pronouncing your last name.

    Your family is so loyal that even a second cousin would take a bullet for you.

    You drink your coffee black and take your liquor straight up.

    If you're from Chicago you come by my house to go shopping at Jewels or Dominick. You used to shop at Kroeger, A&Ps, HiLows, Monkey Wards, and Sears Robuck.

        God Bless and have a great day.

    Happy Thanksgiving !!  Watch the wine consumption !!

     

    I would like to share an experience with you. It has to do with drinking and driving. 

     

    As you know, some of us have had brushes with the authorities over the years. 

     

    The other night I was out for dinner with a few friends.  After consuming too much wine and knowing full well I was wasted, I did something I've never done before. 

     

    Believe it or not I took a bus home.  Yes, a bus.  I arrived home safely, and without incident. 

     

    This was really a surprise to me, since I had never driven a bus before.

    Every magician likes to involve a pretty girl in his magic tricks but its not often that the pretty girl is also a magician herself.  This magic duo performs a stunning illusion during the World Magic Awards in 2009 that will leave you wondering exactly how they pulled this trick off.
