Pay it Forward

Sometimes I'm amazed at my own selfishness. OK, most of the time. I don't even realize how lucky I am to have a big extended family around for the holidays. Each year my biggest concern for Thanksgiving is how to split time between Husband's family and my own. After reading this post by Jill at Scary Mommy: A Thanksgiving Dinner, I feel ridiculous for even considering this a problem.

I have two big dinners to go to? That's my issue? 

No, but seriously, this is an amazing thing she's doing, and I think it deserves to be passed on. If you are in need this year, or if you are in the "lucky" category and could help, please speak up and let her know. There's no shame in admitting you are in the "need" column this year! And if you have been blessed to the point of being able to help, I know without a doubt you will be blessed again by paying that forward to another family who needs it. 

While we're on the subject of helping families, please let me know if you can help with my pajama drive this year! Spread the word, send some jammies, anything that could help the kids who are cold this winter! Or just donate to your local shelter. There are people everywhere in need. 

I can't do much this year, as we're stretched thin ourselves, but even just a few pairs of pajamas or gloves is enough to help a few little ones. And sometimes just spreading the word is the best we can do, but as you can see by A Thanksgiving Dinner, so many lives can be changed by just a little request. 


Comments make me ultra happy! Tell me who you are, what you think, why you're here...
