Since the rules state that you have to “pay it forward” by sending a hand-crafted gift to 3 people who replied, I can see that it can be daunting. Busy people, especially busy moms, look at it and think , “No Way!” It just is adding another tic box on an already full to-do list. One. More. Thing.
So, I am hereby changing the rules: I AM going to pay it forward. But YOU don’t have to! Let me do this for you…and somehow, somewhere down the road, maybe years from now if you are inspired to give a secret little gift to someone who needs a lift, please do so!
Ballerina Girl at Roller Coaster Riding who lives in Brasil is my first
Runner-up is Missy from It’s Almost Naptime . Even tho’ she really doesn’t want to play, I want to send her something. She has been kind enough to give me her address. And a hint about what this mom of four really would like. She’s so giving—she wants something for her daughter!
And Lucky Winner # 3 is Marla. Marla’s blog is Life is Just a Chair of Bowlies and she recently had a photo of her home featured in a lovely advertisement without her foreknowledge or permission. I’m seeing royalty checks in her future…and her house is adorable!
So…here’s the deal. If you are listed here and haven’t given me your addresses, please do! The Girl and I will lurk around a craft store or 2 and come up with a little gift for you. And no pressure…you don’t have to pay it forward. The blessing is for me to give!
