Pay it forward.....
The kids get out for the Holidays this Friday..... I've only got a couple more gifts to purchase, then I'm thru with Christmas shopping..
I got tickled this morning, watching the news, and they were telling about re-gifting.
I don't think it would bother me, if someone re-gifted an item to me. I have never really cared what I got for Christmas.....It's always been the thought that counted..
I could never understand people asking for a certain thing for Christmas..I know there is nothing wrong with it, but I have never been able to do it. Maybe that's an assertiveness problem /issue that I have..
My kids sure don't have that problem..
I think they are spoiled..... And then , when I say that, I think, I feel sorry for the poor child that isn't a little spoiled.
I'm trying to teach them to do for others, and that would be a wonderful gift and feeling.
You know, the Pay it forward idea?
So....... I'm going to challenge myself on this... I'm going to do my best to do things for others..
I'm going to try to go out of my way..
Really... That is probably what I should do all the time, but I'm going to make a real effort..
My kids think it's a great idea too..
We're not going to tell what we do, but we will know the feeling tat we get from helping others..
Have a wonderful week.... and if you have any ideas for paying it forward, let me know...
