Pay It Forward

Okay, life has thrown me some curve balls lately, but there have been some wonderful people come into my life, people I have never met (like Rebecca from yesterday's post) that have made me smile and/or cry tears of joy and not pain.

Therefore, I'm participating in a blog Pay It Forward.  I've joined with Sara at Ditsy Bird Designs, Kelly at 74 Lime Lane, and several others, to Pay It Forward.  Here's how it goes:

■  I will make a handmade gift for the first 3 people who comment on this post.

■  I have 365 days in which to do it

■  What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise!

The catch is that you must participate as well ~ you must also pay it forward. Write up a little pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (or just copy this one).  Spread a little love, possibly around the world, and who knows, you may make someone's day.

I cannot begin to explain the feeling I have when I get a totally unexpected gift.  The joy is indescribable.  I'm so grateful that I want to share that feeling with others.

Now, you may ask me how am I supposed to do that, considering it's well-documented on my blog that I'm having some major health issues with my back, neck, and hands.  Well, I have 365 days in which to accomplish this.  Hopefully, it will be done a LOT sooner (say a month or two), but I know I have that amount of time.  Anyone can make three gifts in a year, even ME.  :)

Soooooooo, join in. Have fun. Spread joy.

Comment below to join in the fun.
