Can you feel the love?


This community of women has sustained me more than I could ever imagine. I posted about my g0nal-f angel who donated her meds to me. It felt very important to me to pay forward this generosity. So I have done 2 things.
  1. My “angel” told me she admires the work done by Doctors Without Borders and donated to them in the past. I wholeheartedly agree that this is a very worthwhile organization. I made a donation to them in her honor.
  2. I wanted to pay it forward directly within our community. I posted to the U.T.E.R.U.S. group about making a donation. I received an email from Mel that they are still in the planning stages for their next recipient. (You know their first recipient is preggers!! YAY Cali!) Mel suggested that I “take a look down the LFCA today and see someone who is in need of some cheering. And then send something to brighten their day.” I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! So someone special is getting a gift from Etsy. I will leave it up to her to reveal herself or not. It was a joy to choose something for her.
This has been a wonderful experience. One I plan to repeat for no particular reason.

If you’re feeling the love today, pass it on!

You are an absolutely wonderful, kind, caring, compassionate woman! I am anxiously awaiting my gift and can't wait to post a pic and message about your generosity and kindness on my blog! I plan to pay it forward and hope that you've started something amazing! Thank you so much for thinking of me during my rough weeks! ((HUGS))

I have to agree--everyone gets so much out of paying it forward.
