Pay It Forward

I was the lucky recipient of Jackie's Pay it Forward post in December.  I think she may have spoiled me because I was the one and only winner.  Thank you!  It is now my turn to give.  I purposely waited until now to post (Jackie was probably wondering what happened), but who wants yet another present the week of Christmas.  I thought it would be much better to wait until we existed in a gross, grey, inversion-induced Utah January to hand out presents.  I figured that would really make someone's day.  Plus, it happens to be my birthday this week.  So, I figured what could be more festive than giving away presents for my birthday!?!  Here's how it works: Everyone who wants in, just leave me a comment by Thursday, January 15th and I'll let my kids randomly choose 3 lucky winners from a hat. If you're chosen you can't break the cycle of "Paying it Forward." Good luck! (You can still play even if I don't know your address.  Just leave your email, and I will contact you if you are a winner.  Please...Just PLAY!)

Don't disappoint me!  It is my birthday after all.  

I better get a handful of comments so I can celebrate in style!

I don't really get this post to be honest with you. Is it like that movie Pay It Forward but you give presents instead of doing good deeds for others?? Anyway either way I'm in! Let me know!

Okay, so it's my lucky day! First off, Happy B-day this week! Second, I'm really on here to post that you'd better believe I'd watch kids so you can hit the open house. So if your mom doesn't work out, really keep me in mind! I don't care that it's been years since we've seen each other. It would mean you'd HAVE to come to my house and come see me if you're dropping your cute kiddo off to play! So there's my two cents! So glad to see that the pregnancy is healthy. I'm sure you let out a sigh of relief to have such good news!

I've been thinking about you the past few days and remembering our joint 14 (or was it 15) year old birthday party. Good times. I was actually going back through my posts to find the link to your blog, when lo and behold there you were, commenting! You make it all so convenient :). And one trip to your blog and I realize why I might have to abandon all thoughts of a fourth...because the Lord would start sending them in bunches! Twins? How fun! I hope it all goes so well for you. I know it will. You seem to have it so together. I appreciate the example these days. I would love to learn more about your experience this past year--the one you eluded to on the blog (not because I relish others pain ,but because I am learning so much from mine :)). Drop me an email won't you?
mindi2532@hotmail.com. You have always been an amazing person. Thanks for being my closest friend at a time in my life when I really needed a good one. I will always love you for that. Happy Day to you!

One more thing...Dr. Draper was my doctor. He delivered McKay and was such a reassuring influence. Tell him hi from us will you?
