People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Pay it Forward

1) The first 5 people to leave a comment on this post will receive a gift from me sometime in the next few months!

2) When and what you receive will be a surprise!

3) Then you have to post this "Pay it Forward" challenge on your blog, then come back and leave a 2nd comment telling me you've done it.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!}Just a little tidbit of fun for those who love to WIN ANYTHING/better the world through kindness!! Good luck!! Happy commenting!

Ok... I really am not trying to cheat! I have no idea what happened there with the multiple postings, but I think I deleted them. Anyway, sounds like fun! I just have no idea what I would send to anyone. I am not as creative as you Kristal dear!

Catherine said...

You're ever-lovin' Dad didn't read the fine print before he enthusiastically chimed in for the prize! Now that he knows what's expected of him, he's trying to do some fast backpeddling. I think you should hold him to it! Love Mom

Dang I didn't make it to the top 5! It's still a great idea. I just might do it anyway!

Well I wasnt one of the 1st Five, but I know whatever you make is amazing. Lucky Lucky Lucky you 1st five!!!

Cute idea.
Let's just lay Thursday by ear. WE were all up until 3 in the morning last night, because Lexi has this horrible-hacking-croupy-barely can breathe cough. I am going to see how she does today. Friday we leave for STG AGAIN. Next week everything should be calm for quite a while (crossing my fingers), so If tomorrow doesn't work, plan on next week for sure.
