Around the first of December I won a Pay it Forward giveaway at Brooke's blog Smart + Strong =
Sexy. It will be a simple gift given to 3 people who comment on my blog telling me about an act of kindness that you have done for someone OR an act of kindness you heard about or seen that touched you.
I'll be picking the winners by drawing names the old fashion way. Please remember if you win , you need to continue paying it forward.
The gift? I'm not sure yet...I will have 2 or 3 frugal gifts and you can pick which one you would like. The giveaway will run from today til next Tuesday, Jan. the 27th.
Good luck and thank you!!
I realized I didn't tell my act of kindness-
In 2004 I had just gotten divorced, was working 3 jobs and was broke like nobodies business. It was getting cold and I knew the water pipes under my house that my soon to be ex husband was suppose to wrap would freeze...I didn't need that. I would have gotten under there and done it myself but I'm very claustrophobic. So at one of my jobs, I worked at a small country store, there was this guy who told me to buy the foam wrappers and for $20 he would get under there and wrap everything for me. I literally paid this young man in almost all change,even pennies. I was broke...very. So the kindness part comes in when I went to check the mail. I had an envelope with a small card in it written in red crayon that said "we love you." and there was 2 $20 bills in it. I still don't know who sent me that money. I suspect it was from a person at my church but no one had ever told me. I needed that $20 so bad and God knew that. I still tear up about that card and $20.
If you found me through Bloggy Giveaways Carnival, thank you and you can get back there thru this link and if you didn't find me through the carnival....go check it out!!!
I have decided to run this giveaway til next Tuesday. So I'll be more prepared! I'll choose 3 winners on the 2nd of February. Can you believe February is almost here? Seems like it was Christmas just last week!
