Okay Friends – Here We Go!
My sweet friends at Nikitaland have started this monthly issue of Pay It Forward. We asked for you to keep this in mind all month and to share things here today on what you have been able to do. Paying it forward is not for bragging purposes – it’s an attempt to show how many different things we can do to pay it forward – lots of them don’t even include money. Gestures that we take for granite may be a God send to another person. So here we go – I’ll start on what mommy has done in the past month.
Mom *always* buys breakfast for at least one person during the month in a drive thru. This month wasn’t any different 🙂 She bought breakfast for the guy behind her in line at the drive thru and left him a pay it forward card.
Dad brought the trash cans up from the drive for us and the neighbor.
Mom left a card in the mailbox for the mail lady with a piece of chocolate once during the month as an appreciation gift.
Mom also fixed all six of her supervisors at work a treat bag for St. Patrick’s Day. They had green shot glasses and some candy. They were a huge hit and everyone seemed like they really enjoyed them.
AND, they were easy 🙂 All 6 shot glasses with candy wrapped in green paper cost only around $5.00
And this month mommy did something for daddy too. She surprised him with dinner one night to a place that he really enjoys. She took off work early, pick him up and they went off in Albert the Smart Car. She didn’t even tell him she was leaving work early that day. It was a great surprise and daddy had an awesome time!
Thanks my friends for reading and supporting the Pay it Forward mission. What did YOU do this month to make a difference? Please post on your page and link back so everyone can see that it takes everyone making a small part to do a great dent!
My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet. You can get it here. You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month. That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.
AND if you are interested in getting some Pay it Forward bracelets, check out Nikitaland’s post here for ordering information. Believe me friends – WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Next meet up will be Friday, May 1, 2015 – mark your calendars!
