We are in the middle of Pay It Forward week at the school, and so I was curious.... what ways do you pay it forward?
When was the last time someone did something really thoughtful for you?

The most recent thing I did was leave behind some coupons that I wasn't going to use next to the products at the store. A lot of people do that around here to help others out. I also donate a lot of the items I get for free/cheap to the food shelter and domestic violence shelter.

The last time someone did something nice to be was when my neighbor brought me an Easter gift. She doesn't celebrate Easter, but knew that I did and went out of her way to do something nice for me.

That's awesome. It must be FABULOUS to have nice neighbors. Mine are the worst! lol

My husband and I work with the youth at our church. We do several community outreach projects with them. Donations to food pantries, cleaning up the town, things like that.

The last really nice thing someone did for me was last week. We hit a really tight spot financially for a couple of days and we didn't have any cash to grab lunch at school. A friend, took us out to eat, not just once, but twice without knowing that we were struggling.

Yeah! She is the only neighbor that we really like. Everyone else just kind of keeps to themselves, so no real complaints, just don't know them that well. lol

And, that was really nice of your friend!

Recently, I gave extra money to the Boy Scouts since they were doing Scouting for Food. I also brought in a bunch of easter candy for all of my employees that had to work on the holiday.

A few weeks ago, a complete stranger paid for my coffee at the gas station. I really appreciated it (and joked with the cashier that I must have looked like I needed it). I paid for anothers coffee with the free one that I had earned to keep the karma flowing a few days later.
