Pay It Forward Fridays

Whoo hooo, it's Friday!  The second best day of the week.  Saturday takes top prize of course.  So, everyone knows the bit by now. 

On Fridays I highlight people who are out there in the world making it better by paying it forward.  Here's an interesting little video you can watch if you so desire to.

Pay It Forward Fridays

Normally, I would take three separate instances of people paying it forward and brag about them.  This week I am going to do it a little differently.  Near my house there is a park that is a family favorite.  Fishing lakes, playgrounds, soccer fields, Frisbee golf and miles of miles trails back in the woods.  My husband is a fan of the trails, since he likes to play Lance Armstrong in the afternoons.  This week my Lance wanna be took a vacation day from work, and got up extra early to join a large group of people that were hitting the trails.  Not to have fun.  But to do so much needed trail repair and park clean up.  It was hot.  The supposed food supply never materialised but our park received some much needed tender loving care.  Thank you everyone!

  3. Thank you JDaniel and Unplanned Cooking! We're lucky that we live in a great town and have this park and nice people to help take care of it. Going to check out your sites right now.

  4. That is a terrific example of paying it forward! It's so important to give back to our communities.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking the time to respond about my husband's situation. You know, he had his gallbladder removed a couple of years ago. He's had plenty of ultrasounds, CTs, colonoscopy, endoscopies, MRI, MRCPE, etc. We're now looking for a new GI.

    Love your positive vibe here, and am now following :)

  6. Lindsay, thanks for your nice words and following me. I hope your husband gets some answers soon. Just keep pushing the docs to figure out what it is. Good luck!

    Kristen, thank you for your nice comment. I too love to hear about people helping others and copied this idea from another blog.
