Pay it Forward!

It is finally time for me to get in on this act! Several years ago when my father-in-law passed away we were fortunate to have two friends step in and help us set up a wonderful luncheon at our home for after the funeral. They not only set it up, they had candles burning, served and cleaned up. I didn't have to do a thing.

A few years later, I was able to pay it forward and do the same thing for a good friend when her MIL passed away. Another friend and I set up and cleaned up a buffet for her family after calling hours. She was amazed and told me she could never repay what I did. I told her to pay it forward someday, just as I had done.

Have a wonderful day and don't forget to get in on the fun!

    Have a good day.

  3. I love the tag "paying it forward!" I believe in this so much

    I moved here a year ago to help take care of my mother-in-law who had Alzheimer's - she passed away this past Oct and I really believe I was meant to meet my in laws and be a part of this last year with them. My father-in-law has so appreciated everything I do and I'm happy I can
