Pay it Forward...

Pay it forward...means that someone does something for you out of the kindness of their heart, not expecting anything in return so a way to "repay" them is to do the same thing for something else.

A couple different friends of mine have encouraged others to Pay it Forward by the first 3 people to leave a comment would receive a gift.  I have so enjoyed it.  Now I want to pay it forward, but want to change it up a little.  Send me an email at cara.canada@gmail.com of the best way you have paid it forward or if you haven't paid it forward before then here is your chance to do it and tell me about it.  Leave me a comment only telling me you will send me an email, not to tell your story because I think the best way to pay it forward is to also be anonoymous!  The best story I receive within a week will receive something special in the mail!  I will also post your story without your name.

I encourage you to leave a comment so we can see how many people will participate and encourage one another!  If you blog, do the same thing!

Here are a few examples to pay it forward:

Buy the lunch of the person behind you in the drive thru;
Help someone do something that someone else has once helped you do (organize a closet ora home office);
Call someone who does not have family close and offer to watch their kids so they can go on a date night without having to pay a babysitter;
Spontaneously drop a gift card in the mail to someone, just because and don't sign your name!

Giving is so much fun!
