It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
No matter how old I get I still get excited. For different reasons than when I was a child, but still the excitement settles deep.
I love everything about it. The carols, the lights, the baked goods, but most especially, how everyone seems just a bit more patient. Friendly even.
While I'll mention to check out or follow me for release updates ...I want more than anything for this to be a fun PAY IT FORWARD POST.
Money is tight, times are stressful, but you know that feeling you get when you read about a miracle? Or when some mysterious stranger does a random act of kindness?
Let's all make a pact to do one random something this season that helps a stranger. Anything. Just something.
Maybe help out at your local food bank, or sending even $5.00 to Red Cross to help Super storm Sandy victims. Maybe it's helping out for an afternoon at your local animal shelter.
One thing I've done in the past and always feels fantastic AND is true fun... stopping in for a visit to a retirement home. So many elderly are placed in homes then forgotten. All they have done, and there they sit, alone.
Call the manager, let them know you'd like to plan a visit. Take a platter of cookies, your kids, the neighborhood kids and sing carols. Or simply mingle taking time to chat with each.
Have you done something like this in the past? Perhaps have something already arranged this year? Or maybe someone did something for you that you NEVER forgot. A stranger you never got to thank.
Here's your chance. Two Winners Announced
Prize:Two Stuffed Stockings! (Author Swag, Holiday Jewelry, Candy & a Florida Lottery Ticket)
** Due to the lottery tickets winners MUST be 18 years of age to claim prize **
How to Enter?
Simply tell me what you've done in the past or might be planning to do this year in 'Paying it forward' OR take this moment, to thank the person/stranger who helped you!
Merry Christmas Happy Holidays to ALL!
