Pay It Forward

I was visiting Beth, and she has posted a "Pay It Forward" Challenge. This is a great way to bless others with a surprise in their mail--using your time, energy and love.Here are the rules as posted on her blog:The first 3 bloggers to leave a comment on this post will receive a hand-made item from me. Those 3 bloggers promise to post this challenge on their blog (meaning they too will ‘pay-it-forward’, creating a handmade gift for the first 3 bloggers that leave a comment on their blog!!) That's a lot of hand-made love being passed around! ; )The gift can be any price range--though I'm thinking that keeping it small will be sufficient--and you have 365 days to make/ship your gift!! So, the person receiving this will be definitely surprised when a surprise shows up unexpectedly in their mailbox!As you can see, if everyone cooperates and "pays it forward" this spreading of love could go on for a very long time.If you want to participate, just leave a comment telling me so and then repost this on your blog so that you can pay it forward to 3 others, and so on, and so on, and so on.......You can still leave a comment on what you think about this even if you don't want to participate!!I'm anxious to see who the first three will be who want to participate in this venture of spreading our love for another!

Good morning, Denise
I've been wanting to do this ever since the first time I read about someone "paying it forward". I'm excited!

What an awesome idea. I just love how people come up with such innovative ideas. And what a great way to share the love with one another. I'll be sure and post this on my blog. I just hope I can come up with some cool ideas now. ;) Thank you for keeping this going.

I'll go. I think this will make me number 3. Sound's like fun. By the way I noticed you had Yolanda Adams playing on your blog. My mom and I went to see the Boston Pops last summer. They were doing a gospel performance and Yolanda Adams was the featured singer. She was great.

I'll definitely be considering this.

Awww...Denise! You commented on mine first (said I love you) so, I sent you an email to see if you were participating or just sending you love :-( I wasn't sure.

I only got one and that was Beth...I'm sad. Hear my tears hitting the keyboard?

If you have some extras who want to participate...send me a couple. I want to share my love too :-(((((((.

I love you!!!

Wow!! what a great idea, Denise ;D:D:D:D But I wonder how could I do this since I don't live in U.S.

Hi Denise!!

Thanks for joining me!! I have two now!!

Would you do me a favor-email me with your favorite color (might it be pink?) and also your address!!

I had your address at CHRISTmas time, but I think it got lost in amongst all my yarn reorganization!!

Love you and have a wonderful day!! Thanks for your prayers every day, especially for me feeling better--on my way, not there yet--but on my way!!
