Pay It Forward

There is a pay it forward going around Blogland; have you seen or heard anything about it? It is a gesture of inspiring kindness. I discovered it while visiting some favorite blogs. I am not quite sure where it started. I found it at Abby's lovely blog, before her it was Erin beautiful site, and then is was Suzan.
My blog anniversary was May 19th; I had planned on posting this sooner, but life got in the way.  I have been behind, in commenting and posting most of this month.  I started my blog 2yrs ago; it doesn't seem possible. I think I read blogs for over a year, before I decided to give it a go. I had no idea what to expect, but I had read so many positive, uplifting, life changing stories. I figured why not?!  I started with 3 followers, then it grew to 17. It was when,  I found Arlee Bird's A-Z blogging challenge last year, that my blog started to grow. I can't thank you all enough for being supportive and kind. I still have much to learn in my writing and crafting skills. I have all of you to thank for being there, when I needed a kind comment or to reaffirm, I'm not alone in this journey.  It amazes me the bonds we form online. I talk about you and your wit, cleverness, and support. My family just doesn't understand, but it is okay, most of know this feeling.  I feel bad, I haven't been around much this month, but I do plan or getting back into the swing of commenting and blogging. It was a strange month for me; I was really sick; I haven't been this sick in decades okay centuries, lol.  

This is how it works; comment and I will put your name in a hat. I will select 5 of you on June 7th to receive a homemade item from me. It will be a token item with a lot of sentiment. You in turn have to agree to also do a Pay it Forward post on your blog.  It doesn't have to be anything big; it can be a homemade card, a poem, (no mine isn't a poem). My only clue is day and night. Yeah, that is vague ;-D   Anything goes...it just needs to be thoughtful and kindhearted, not big in price.

It isn't the size of the gift, but the spirit of paying it forward that makes this special. I do hope you will like what I send. If  it isn't your cup of tea, pass it on! I'm fine with that...
 Thank you for following me and being a huge part of my world~ If you comment I will come visit you! I promise I will be better, until I go camping in July(it is only four days). :D

Oh, and don't hurry or worry about a time line on your handmade gifts; No one expects miracles. YOU can set your own time line~
