Pay it Forward

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.


You know my mom has been going to the plasma clinic now for several months.  There is a nurse there named Val that mom has just fallen in love with.  No matter how busy her day, she has a smile to open the sky and always a kind word.  Last week, it was birthday.  Mom surprised her with a small gift of appreciation – something she could share with her family.  I hope it brought a smile to everyone like she always brings a smile to my mom’s face.

And speaking of the plasma clinic – mom has made her 20th donation this past week as well.  When she started, she made a personal commitment to herself to do 20 donations.  There have been up and down times – times she has wanted to quit – but she kept on to meet her goal.  I’m not sure how many people mom has touched with her donations but we are proud of her here at the Hotel Thompson.  And you know what, she is trying to do 20 more.  At that end of 40, she will reevaluate how she feels. 


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 March 2nd – mark your calendars!

And They Are OFF!

  A couple of weeks ago, I gave mom/dad a list of things I just needed to send off this year for Christmas around the world.  Now, mom looked at the list and just dreaded it because the woman *hates* shopping. Can you believe that my friends?  A woman that *hates* shopping?  Rolls piggy eyes – I know unheard of.  Now on the other hoof, dad LOVES shopping.  He can’t get enough of it.  In fact, personally I think he was a woman in a previous life – I’m just saying.

But daddy had this bright idea to come over him Sunday morning.  He said to mom, “You know, I bet the post office won’t be busy today.  Let’s go play Santa and Mrs. Claus and mail everything off.”  You know friends that this is not going to end well, right?

 So mom went through all of the shopping bags, made out all of her Christmas cards that she could remember and started bagging things up.  Of course, us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson tried to help.  So friends, if you get a card or a package from us and it has some anipal fur in it, you my friends just got a bonus – snorts with piggy laughter.  Now you need to figure out which one of us it came from because we were all trying to help mom out.  She might of gotten a little frustrated to say the least in our attempts to help.

This picture here to the right is one of the many bags that was loaded up in the Jeep for transport to the main post office that is open on Sundays.  You see, last Sunday mom/dad went there to get some customs declarations and there was no one in line.  Thus that is why daddy thought no one would be there this week.

Let me tell you something my friends,  daddy was wrongas usual.  The post office was packed!  There were 23 people in front of us and ONE teller.  Yep 23 people – mom counted them.  So they stood in line…and stood…and moved slightly…and then stood some more.

Finally mom had to walk because her back was hurting.  She went outside and came back in laughing.  Of course, daddy hadn’t moved that much in line.

He asked mom why she was laughing.  She told him and I have to admit that it was hilarious.  What was it?  Okay outside of the post office there are several signs that fully enforces “Do not back into parking spaces.”  The post office is really strict about this rule.  Mom is standing outside, sees the sign and looks around the parking lot.  That’s when she sees it and starts laughing… of course all the while whipping her camera out to take pictures of course.

 On the other side of the sign is the car that is what – backed into a parking space.  Oh dear Lord no.  We better call the postal police on this situation STAT.  What?  Oh yeah – hits piggy forehead – *THAT* is the postal police backed into a parking space.  What was I thinking?  Talk about setting the example by leadership huh?  Mom told this to daddy and he was just laughing up a storm.  Why is that some people don’t have to follow the rules huh?

 And we all know my daddy.  He really doesn’t have a serious bone in his entire body.  Maybe that is how he stays so young – acting his shoe size?  There mom/dad are standing in the slow line progressing closer and closer to the one teller.  Daddy gets this grin on his face, looks at mom and says whose envelope is this?  Mom looks and tells daddy.

Daddy then says, take my picture.  Mom says okay and clicks away.  Daddy then tells mommy, “You can tell Fozzie I touched her package”.

Shaking piggy head.  I told you my friends – he acts his shoe size!

Pay it Forward – REMINDER

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

Paying it forward is is something that we want to start in the new year of 2015. You know the old saying of, “Do onto others as you want them to do onto you?”  Well, let’s put it in action in 2015.  Every month on the first Wednesday of the month, we are hosting Pay it Forward with my friends from Nikitaland.

Paying it forward is simple.  You do something for someone out of the blue, not asking for anything in return just because you can.  It’s little things that count. Karma comes around for all of us.

Here are a few examples:

Pay for the person behind you at a drive thru – could be as simple as a cup of coffee or breakfast.

Help someone take their groceries to their car at the grocery store.

Give extra as a tip to your waiter/waitress.

Visit a elderly neighbor and spend some time with them.  Read to them or bring them lunch.  Listen to them as they talk.

Pay for the person behind you at a toll booth.

Put money in a parking space for someone whose time is getting close to expiring.

Make a donation.

Cook lunch or dinner for a neighbor in need. 

Offer to babysit for free to a couple who needs a night out.

See, it’s the little things that count that make the most.  Just being there for someone to see their smile can bring great karma your way.  So in the new year of 2015 – let’s Pay it Forward.

You have an entire month to Pay it Forward.  Do little things.  We will meet back here on my blog on June 3, 2015 to post about what we have done and how we have touched someones life in 2015.  I hope this inspires you my friends ❤
