My Turn to Pay it Forward!!

Deb of Dirty Socks & Pizza paid it forward to me, so thanks to her, it is my turn to Pay It Forward!!


"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, inspiring or uplifting to the first 3 bloggers who post a comment on this entry (please leave your email address if I don't all ready have it.).

In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. There are no cost restraints, but don't go crazy! 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? And remember that kindness doesn't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around."

So get to it... Leave me a comment telling me you are ready and willing to give and receive. And if you aren't so lucky as to be one of the first three, feel free to go ahead extend a kind word or deed today, without expecting a darn thing in return. "What's in it for me?" is a no-no. Got it?

SO PAY IT FORWARD BABY!!!

I'm posting but I can't pay anything forward.... unless it's a pie or something. I HAVE NO MONEY. I hate my life.

Whitney R said...

Tis the season!

Whitney R said...

Mommy Madness said...

Wendyburd1 said...

I love Deb. That's it.

I love her scarf too.

And to Ms. boob nazi...someone would totally love getting a poem in the mail, heck just to get REAL mail would be awesome right!

Cosmopolite said...

I would do it, but I have no money. :(

I've been shit out of luck recently.

Wendyburd1 said...

Lee- just so ya know, it can be a poem or anything that can lift someone's spirits. You might even own things you don't like anymore but someone else would find it special. Hey I am making all 3 of my Pay It Forwards home-made stuff. They could very well hate them, but maybe they will remember I was thinking of them and trying to make something nice FOR them, and that will mean the most. I got really OCD and have been working on them ALL night, and I have to bend over what I am doing so my neck and shoulders...AGONY PAIN...kill me now!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Hey I posted your Don't You Hate It When...thanks! :)

Jillene said...

That sucks!! I guess it DOESN'T pay to be sick and go to bed early!!

Annette said...

How fun! I will look for opportunities to pay it forward. Even if it is a smile or help bringing in their garbage or homemade treat or something!!!

Susan said...

Shit. Just found your blog for the first time through Shelle at Blokthoughts and I'm too late to receive. But I'm going to pay forward with kindness somehow to someone...and maybe even try your idea myself. PS...I am not kidding but we just had the same danm thing happen to us 2 weeks ago at the movies...however it was due to an error in the paper. I HATE when that happens!

Kristen said...

That scarf is really pretty and yes it looks good on you! What a cute girl to send it to you!
