Apr 30, 2013, 12 smiles On Paying Forward: A cool little thing happened, in Western New York, today is the day The Buffalo News along with Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo is selling newspapers for $1.00 to help fund the medical care of children. I were driving and a woman came up to my window. I had no cash or change on me and felt awful and said, "I don't have a dollar!" and she said, "Don't worry about it, the car ahead of you just gave me $5.00 so that's 5 papers, so here, enjoy a paper." I said, "I can't take this" and she insisted. The reason I share this is about "paying forward", to give and receive. I thanked her and asked for blessings for her, as well as the person that gave more $ than they had to so now it is up to me to give back and I will and THAT is how simple being kind is.

Aug 29, 2012, 8 smiles I received the most beautiful email from Sunil Desai of The Bindi Project today, interviewed last week Saturday on Awakin. He spoke to me about my Father, the Marines, and told me that my Father would be proud of the work I am doing today.

I had to share that because it were my first day with ServiceSpace and already look.
Aug 26, 2012, 9 smiles Driving through my city today, for the first time I saw on a front lawn a family, who instead of having a garage/yard sale and selling things to make money, they put out all of their clothes that no longer fit them or they had a use for with a sign saying: FREE CLOTHES. I were unable to stop to take a picture but it put a huge smile on my face.
