PAY IT FORWARD



Have you ever seen the movie Pay It Forward with Haley Joel Osment? 
A young boy attempts to make the world a better place after his teacher 
gives him that chance. It is an excellent movie, well worth watching.

My friend Laura over at Silence is Broken had a contest this last week 
based on the idea from this movie and I thought it was such a great idea 
that I am participating here. My first reaction was I don't have time! Then I 
thought--wait a second--yes I do. We all do if it's important enough to us, right?

HERE ARE THE RULES: The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness 
without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in 
their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward in their own way.

This is how it works... I am going to agree to send something fun, cute, 
& nice to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, 
those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send 
something to and so on. If you are interested in participating, be one of the
first 3 blog owners to leave a comment!

The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were
 given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe
something unique from where you live? There are no cost restraints, but 
don't go crazy! If you'd like to join in, be one of the first 3 people to leave 
me a comment. You have to promise that you will then post about this on 
your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people 
who sign up to play along through your blog.

If I don't get 3 blog owners that want to participate I would like to send 
something to 3 people that leave a comment even if you don't own a blog--so 
leave a comment with some sort of way to contact you and who knows what 
lovely things may show up for you from Alaska to make you smile...

In return I ask that you Pay It Forward to 3 other people in some way.
It doesn't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others
every single day, everywhere you go;  just look around.

Oh, and if you haven't seen the movie--I suggest you rent it tonight.
You'll be glad you did.

Hi Kris,

Have been 'out of touch' because we have been at Pasley (our 'mini' Alaska LOL!) and it is very rustic; as in propane and solar power only!(no phones, no computers etc) Do not know if you have read my blogs as of late; but there are some photos of our beloved Pasley, that I finally was able to put on the computer (fortunately, with a kind friend's help).

Hope you and family are well; actually was admiring your Lady Head Vases; they are all so lovely. (There are a few that hmmmm, that I think are extra special!)

Talk soon.

God Bless.

Gina
