Pay It Forward....It's Worth It

******Please Click On "The Daily Puppy" it is building a little money to help build a NO KILL shelter here in Newnan, Georgia******

"Friday's Shoot-Out" was awesome. Seeing everyone's food, resturant's and watering holes made me gain 6 pounds!!If anyone else would like to participate, let one of us gang member's know.......we would love to see your town. This Friday's subject is 'ANYTHING GOES"!! Pick any subject you'd like and shoot away. We're going to get back to letting member's pick weekly subjects next week but this week the world is your oyster (okay, maybe not the world, lol). Join us won't you??? We have a great time and who doesn't want to be in a gang???

I got this really cool idea from Miz Dot @ Counting My Blessings. This "Pay It Forward" project is simple acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness pass it on. So here’s how it works. I will send a gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF and they will do so on their blog by posting something similar and so on and so on. Please let me know by comment if you would like to participate. I think you will find it rewarding and fulfilling to do something that takes us totally outside of ourselves and spreads random acts of kindness. Instead of always hearing all of the bad things happening in the world let's make something good happen!! Please leave me a comment on my post if you'd like to participate. I know we're all busy, but it truly on takes just a few minutes. It doesn't have to be anything expensive at all......just a bookmark, a recipe, a packet of flower seeds, just anything that you feel is something something that represents you. Or you could always send something to one of brave soldier's who fight daily so that we can have liberties and freedom.......

This is for Airman Mom...........true heroes indeed...........

American Pride.........this made me think of you again Airman Mom. Thanks for always calling attention to our brave soldiers who fight for our freedoms daily.......

you can over look the blindness of the narrow minded people on
their narrow minded streets"*********~~~~~Glen Campbell~~~~

  5. This sounds wonderful and count me in.

  6. Ya know, I'll eventually get my act together and do a Friday Photo shoot from the Scandalous 'hood.

  7. I did the pay it forward a few months back...it was really fun. I hope yours goes well too.

  8. I have done the PIF before and it is so infectious to see it going around...

    Fantastic pics of our Brave soldiers

  9. Reggie Girl, you are a dear heart with so many ideas. I am not clear on the Shoot Out thing..is it an online group or a group that goes around together in person?

    Oh let's not forget those fighting hard for us. Thanks for the pics.

    I cannot commit to the PIF as I have follow-through issues with my busy life. Happy dog day!

  10. What a wonderful thing to do! That's what this world needs more of...KINDNESS! A little bit goes a long way! Have a super day!

  11. That is such a neat idea. I hope you will blog about it, so we can all follow along! :-)

  12. PIF is something I've been doing for years. I'm a firm believer in what goes around comes around. Loved the puppy pic.

  13. Hey - thanks for stopping by The Kitchen! Love that Pay It Forward concept, and try my best to do good deeds for others with the only request of Please Pay it Forward!

  14. am doing this already, or i would 'play' with you. such a fun idea!

  15. Thanks for thinking of the soldiers. We should think of them more often. We love you, our men and women in uniform!

    Great idea you have there, but I am the kind of person who can't remember to send a thank you note until 2 years later. I still have something to send you, and I have not packed it yet. I waited so long to send poor Loida her package, I now have to wait to get her new address. But when I do get it, both packages are going out at the same time!

    I have promised myself I was going to email you for a week. So, I am hitting the Post Comment button and going to my email.

    Kindness to everyone! I love you all!

  16. You are THE best! What a beautiful post, I thank you for thinking of our soldiers. they deserve our constant prayers!

  17. congrats!!!!! tons of kisses and hugs all around!!!!!

  18. I love the idea of PIF - such a great idea! :)

    I'm intrigued by the 'Friday's Shoot Out' - I would love to join in on the fun! :)

    Love the soldier pics...

  19. I did something like this last year and I think I forgot to mail out my little gifts.. No one said anything but yikes.. Glad to see it going around again..

  20. Just popped in to say hello and thanks for the visit :) luv Karen x

  21. Hi Gal, I have not been around to all my favorite blogs of late, and I am missing ever├Żone. Just not enough time in a day to get it all done I guess. I am moving around more now, using only one crutch, so having fun being a bit more independent!! The end is in sight. I hope all is well with you there. Thinking of you, and just wanted to drop by to say HELLO! Have a good Tuesday. Debby


I'm listening.....and while you're at it PLEASE make me laugh!!
