Generosity... Pay it forward

Having just been called "ungenerous" in a particularly weird exchange with my mother, I happened upon this post, and decided the universe might be trying to tell me something.

(The details of the fight aren't all that interesting, but I chose to help a neighbor in a big way that cost me personally, only to later discover that he was scamming me. My mother said it was strange that someone as "ungenerous" as I, would go out of my way to help someone, only to find out that he was being dishonest...)

Here a quote from MadHatter's blog today...

“I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

Same promise here. We have a year to make good on it. First three to comment will get handmade gifts from me, and make the same commitment to others... okay?


  1. what the hell, I join in :)

  2. I'm in as well. Are there any particular rules to follow, or can I just go nuts with this? My first time, as you can probably tell.

  3. Nope - I think we need rules - "going nuts" is good!

  4. I think I'm three!!! Sign me up :-)
