There are so many ways to give back or pay it forward. It’s really only limited by your imagination. You can buy lunch for a friend, pay for someone else’s coffee, mail a card, share a smile…to name a few.
Just recently I found a new way. By attending events that you are involved in. Tell me what’s important to you. Let me give an example…
So yesterday, a bunch of us are having fun gathered together to craft at Card Class. We all started to talk about what’s going on. Since it’s summer and very hot there’s not as much happening since everyone is trying not to melt. We talked about the movies, what’s on Netflix, bowling, and some crafting conventions. Then we started digging a little deeper and started talking about the kids, grand-kids, grand-dogs.
One of our very own’s kids is playing a significant role in a play for the summer youth theater. The talk became what night to go, dinner before, and on. In the end a bunch of us are going to this play to encourage and have some fun.
Here’s where the give back comes in. (I know you were wondering.) If you could see faces light up by not only Mom, but also the crafters that are going you would think we won the lottery. Remember it’s often the small things that make a huge difference. Create your ripple of impact so it collectively grows in to a wave.
With inky fingers,
