Pay It Forward

Sometimes things just go smoother when you have help.  And sometimes that help is unexpected - the best kind.

A few weeks ago I posted on Facebook that I was looking for a tag shaped punch and I was hoping that someone heading to a larger centre would be able to look for one for me at one of the big box stores.  I had had trouble finding one, even online.  I had found some on, but they refused to ship to me for se reason.  

That evening a got a phone call from a friend of mine asking if I had tried looking online, so I explained the Amazon situation.  She thought it was odd (as did I) that they wouldn't ship to me, so she asked if she could try to order it and see if it would work for her. As much as I thought it was moot, I agreed. And so she did.  And it worked!

I was astounded and confused.  Not sure what I ever did to Amazon. But it was ordered and I was excited to receive my punch.  When I asked my friend how much the total was so I could repay her, she told me she didn't want me to give her money.  She just wanted me to do something nice for someone else. Aw!

I received my punch yesterday morning and it is perfect! Perfect size, works great, it's even sparkly! And it will forever remind me of my Boo and how sweet she is.  

The punch will now be used to make tag shaped business cards.  Can't wait to play with it!

For those of you wondering, I did do something nice for another friend of mine.  I got a few other people to help me write a bunch of things we like about her in a card and sent it to her in the mail.  She seemed very grateful. And, knowing her, I won't have to tell her to pay it forward. She probably already has. 

I would love to hear what kind things you have done recently, just because you can.
