*NEW* 1-2-3 Trade with Me ~ Pin Trading at Sesame Place

My older son has been collecting and trading collector’s pins at Walt Disney World since he was a little boy.  He’s amassed quite a nice collection, displayed in portfolios and on lanyards now as an adult.  It’s a treat when we visit Disney and see the new pins available, and we thought of it as pretty much our “Disney” thing.

That is, until now.

I’ve learned that this year, Sesame Place is introducing their own pin trading program, 123 Trade with Me.  With my 3 year old being a Sesame Place super-fan, I am excited that he will carry on the pin trading love, much closer to home 🙂  With Sesame Place being nearby, I have a feeling my younger son will be enjoying the pin trading fun a lot!

Pins and lanyards will be available for purchase within the park at Mr. Hooper’s Emporium ~ lanyards are priced at $9.99 each, and pins ranging in price from $8.99 to $10.99.  Currently, there are 32 unique pins to purchase/trade/collect, with more to come in the future.

As with Disney, Sesame Place appears to be releasing core pins, as well as “limited edition” and “Season Pass Member” pins.  “Special Edition” pins will be sold for a shorter period of time. [I’m eager to see which pins will fall in to this category – my thought is perhaps some relating to holidays and peak events, such as Elmo’s A Very Furry Christmas.]  Once pins have run their course, they will be “retired” and then only available through trading (or I suppose eBay 😉 ).

Of course, there are some basic rules that have been cited for pin trading.  Most importantly, make sure your pins have the Sesame Place logo and the trademark  TM/© Sesame on the back of the pin.  [There have been a fair amount of ‘fake’ Disney pins circulating on eBay and elsewhere, so I suppose there may be knock-offs of Sesame Place pins at some point – be mindful that a ‘good deal’ you encounter online may not be that terrific if you cannot trade them after all.]  Once you have your pins, find a Sesame Place Team Member who is wearing a trading pin lanyard, and ask if you may see their pins.  If there’s one you’d like, ask for a trade.  You may trade up to 3 pins per Team Member per day.

The new 123 Trade with Me pin trading program is definitely a highlight of the season this year for my family, and I look forward to both seeing the pins available and my younger son’s carrying on the pin-trading

Opening Day at Sesame Place this year is April 29th — so get ready — for the usual Sesame Place fun, plus some pin collecting and trading 🙂

The Father Effect

Have you ever had an issue plague your heart and mind for a long period of time, struggling with the doubt, never being able to fully move beyond a point in healing, and feeling as this is just the way things will always be?  I’ve experienced this for nearly all of my years of life.  I reached a point where I just accepted it, and lugged it around as if it were a part of me: an unwanted part, a part that didn’t fit, didn’t belong – much like a third arm that served no purpose, wasn’t useful in any manner, and just hanging there, a lifeless impediment.

I thought this was just the norm ~ and then, in an instant that all changed with a simple stumbling across a television program (of all things).

A mindless moment quickly turned in to a deep and revolutionary experience.  It sounds so dramatic; I suppose because it truly was.  I sat hinged on each scene, relating to so much of it. The Father Effect movie addressed so many of the emotions that I had deeply felt for decades.

It did much more than that though.  It presented the “other side.”  I had always seen the situation through my eyes, from my perspective.  This movie presented the larger scope, and I sat genuinely in awe of the reality that there was far more to the issue than I had previously understood.

By the end of the movie, I can honestly say my perspective had changed.  It had morphed from one of resentment, loss, and mourning to one of forgiveness, acceptance, and healing.

I’d heard people mention in the past about how one day an issue melted away, freeing one after years of being weighed down by it.  I never understood (or quite honestly even truly believed) the testimonies.  That afternoon though, I did understand, and genuinely believed.  That weight, that extra lifeless impediment that was always present, was no longer there.

My feelings of utter worthlessness and not belonging anywhere were put in to perspective.  Their source wasn’t grounded in truth about my worth or ability to be loved. Rather, the source was grounded in someone else’s pain.  My father’s tossing me aside, his most recent wife’s not even giving me the courtesy of knowing he had passed away (I learned about that through Google), and the hurtful words uttered by others were not reflections of me. Rather, they were reflections of pained individuals seeking to assuage their own feelings with little to no regard for how it was impacting anyone else, including me.

The truths shared in this movie, and the way in which they were presented, are so very powerful, and healing.  I am thankful for the men and women who participated in the movie, and for the gentleman who created the project.  They, in their sharing, have aided in my healing and growth ~ for that I am sincerely grateful.

It’s with this renewed sense of self, and fresh understanding, that I can say without hesitation or lack of honesty, that regardless of what happened in the past, I love my father ~ and I choose to believe that in his own way, he loved me too.

   May your memory be a blessing, (A)(B).
