My friend, Linds in the United Kingdom, had a marvelous idea on her blog today! I love the whole idea and am happy to participate!
"2013 creative pay it forward ....
The first 5 people that comment on this blog post will receive from me, sometime in the next calendar year, a random gift - perhaps a book, baked goodies ,candle, or surprise! There will be no warning and it will happen when the mood strikes me. The catch??? Those five people must make the same offer in their own blog or Facebook post."
That's right. The first FIVE people to comment will receive, at some time during 2013, a gift for me. My timing, my choice, my delight. The catch being that those five people must do the same thing on their blog, or their Facebook status in 2013. Got it?? I have no idea who started this off, but I got it from a friend, and I love the whole idea of passing it on. Whoever it was, thank you so, so much!
Now isn't that the best idea to start the year? Spreading some happiness? I can't wait to come up with some surprises!
If you are in the first five, please email me your home address, with 2013 Pay-It-Forward in the address line, so I can actually get my gift to your doorstep! (firstname.lastname@example.org) Just think - so many of us could be the recipient of surprise gifts in 2013. And that really does bring a huge amount of joy to my heart.
I know there are some of you who read but don't comment on my blog - this would be a great time to put fingers to keyboard and leave me a comment :)
