~Pay It Forward~

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...

  1. Wow~ this is popping up all over blogland. What a wonderful thing to do. I'm loving it. I try to do something each day for someone else. I say it's the little things in life that matter & if I can make life a little easier or enjoyable, I'm all for that. I'm off to post on my blog.

    Enjoy your day~Becky

  5. Good Morning, Rhonda,
    I love the Pay It Forward idea. I see you have your five participants. I got in over at Dee's blog, but have plenty of room left on mine...so if you hear of any more bloggers that want to play, send them my way!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ~Natalie
