Pay it Forward!!

Edited to add: I am thrilled to be able to pay it forward to Jen, Nicole and Laurie!! If you could please e-mail your address to me :, I will get your gifts out soon! Thanks for playing!!

Have you seen this movie? It is one of my favorites about the power of kindness multiplied...paid forward. My friend, Lisa, did a lovely little giveaway on her blog a few months back about kindness. I loved the whole idea (and Lisa too, for being the kindhearted person she is!). I have thought from time to time about how to incorporate her idea on my blog.

So you can imagine the fun I've had watching a Pay it Forward movement travel through blogland over the past few weeks. On Saturday, I had no sooner mentioned to Jim that I would love to do a Pay it Forward on my blog, when I spotted a new post from one of the most inspirational bloggers I "know". I was thrilled to be the first lucky recipient of Denise's Pay it Forward...and even more thrilled to get my own up and running!

Here's how it works: (I copied this straight from Denise's blog!)


Here are the rules:

I will send a gift (a surprise!!) to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this "PIF" exchange, and who make the same pledge on their own blog. The only thing you have to do in return is PAY IT FORWARD - on your own blog.
So, if you want to get a goodie from me, and are willing to "Pay it Forward" on your blog, let me know!
I'd just love to send out a fun little present to you!!!
* Note I'll need your real (snail mail) address... which you can do by private email.

So come one of the first three comments......
I can't wait to Pay It Forward to YOU!!!!
