I have been seeing this all over blogland today and it really struck a chord with me. So many of you have been so kind and encouraging to me that it makes me want to do something nice for someone too. See how that works?
*Pay It Forward *
When something, usually good, happens to you, you turn around and do something good for someone else. Instead of paying something "back" you are paying it "forward" on to the next person.
Here's how it works....
The first five people who comment on this blog post will receive a handmade gift from me.
In return, you must FIRST write a blog post explaining Pay It Forward 2011. Then.... send out a handmade gift to the first 5 visitors who leave a comment on your post. Take your time...you don't need to send them all today or tomorrow. Any time in the next few months. No pressure. This is to be a joyful experience.
This is such a sweet way to connect with friends or meet new ones, by sharing things we create with our hearts.
"It's not the size of the gift that matters, but the spirit of paying it forward."
Now, isn't that just lovely? (Thanks Misi!)
Until next time...
