Fwd: At McDonalds (MUST READ)



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!

friendship  you've given  me.

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

If this  comes back to you

then  you'll have a  friend

for life  but, if this

Send  this to everyone  you consider  a  friend!

It will  grant you one wish and only one  wish,
