Pay It Forward

Well for some reason...this entry got deleted! So I will make another attempt to re create the master piece I had two minutes ago... :) This year my family has decided to pay it forward. This idea was brought up by my oldest daughter, Katrina. She was one of the lucky Manitoban students who got to attend WE DAY. After that day, her mind set changed, she changed. She gives me hope that the world of tomorrow, will be just fine :) So after discussion, we all decided to pick a charity each month and save our pocket change, and take $20, from our very limited entertainment ($100/mth) budget and donate it to the charity of the month. But paying it forward is not only about donations and $$$ , they need your time aswell. So to just give a bit more each month, we have also planned to volunteer at different organizations around the city too!! This is such a great way to give back and have real quality time with your family, without costing a lot!! It's a soul tune up, something we all need once and awhile. I have learned as I get older, the world is not about ME, it is about We. We need to set an example and show the good in the world, it s US raising the future generation! So if you are reading this and are like me, Truly Blessed ... Then take a chance, give of yourselves and be the change you want to see in the world!! It just takes one...idea,step,action!! I challenge you today, go out do a Random Act of Kindness, then come back and share with me...we all need a warm fuzz on cold days like this :)


  1. I think you are an amazing person. Your plan to Pay It Forward this year is a great plan...even though you already do it in your own way. Just your mere presence in my space was enough to inspire and delight. I am so lucky to call you friend. <3
