Trade Up 4 JS (Round 2 - concludes)

Trade Up 4 JS (Round 2)

Round two has just concluded and this time, Lucky the dog was traded up for a watch… and no ordinary watch either! This watch is from Sereena and it’s got the words “My problem is You” on it, making it a uniquely interesting and unusual watch indeed.

Now why you wonder would we settle for a watch? Well for one thing, a watch marks the time of the day, a watch tells us how many more hours we have left of each day. A watch is a timeless reminder of how little time we have left to leave our mark on this earth.

I’m reminded of Benjamin Franklin a man of many talents and interests, a printer by trade, a scientist by fame, and a man of action by all accounts (culled from the Internet), who once said and I quote, “Do you love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.”

On that same note of not wasting time, American motivational author and speaker Dale Carnegie also said something that I personally like, “Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.”

Amen, let the winds of caring for the down trodden sweep through you and the community you live in and make Trade Up 4 JS your newest hobby because there’s a poor Single Parent out there that’s having a particularly bad ‘time’ right now and we need to reach out to this soul.

Round Three is now on…let’s see what will be traded up this ‘time’ around….
