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 granted may be a God send to another person.
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 November 4, 2015 – mark your calendars!

Today, let’s tell another true story from daddy. I know you’re dying to hear it – evil snorts.
To get through college, daddy worked at a local hospital on the mental health ward. No those rumors are not true – that is not where he met mommy – snorts. When he first started at the hospital, he worked the midnight shift. The mental health ward during this time was in the basement right beside the morgue. That would bring shivers to this little piggy to begin with.
One of his co-workers told him a story the first couple of days that he was in training that still to this day puts his nerves on edge. They said that years earlier, a mental health patient had gotten out of their rooms in the middle of the night. They went into the elevator and hung themselves around 3:00AM. Staff of the hospital found the mental health patient hanging in the elevator dead.
Since then, the elevators had locks installed on them and they won’t work without the key being inserted to call for the elevator. The nurse told daddy that every night at 3:00AM, without fail, the elevator doors would open by themselves. Daddy didn’t take too much into this until the first time he worked by himself. The nurse’s station was right in front of the elevator doors. Exactly at 3:00AM, the doors opened all by themselves. It still sends chills up and down daddy’s spine. And the elevators to this date, still open and close exactly at 3:00AM. Nothing is wrong with them, they’ve been checked. There is no reason for them to open at this particular time. Anyone going up?
