Give Back!

How will YOU give back? We’re all blessed in some way or another. We’ve each been given gifts along the way and now it’s your turn to give back to someone else. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it is to do something for someone else just to Give Back! No strings attached, no thank you’s expected, just give from your heart. I will post the ways in which people choose to give back on this page. Don’t limit yourself to doing this just once, give back again and again and watch how it changes your life! Step out of your box and do something for a complete stranger!

~ My motto, though I know some won’t agree, is you can’t out give God! ~

Ideas for Giving Back:

* A note – leave a simple note thanking someone for something they’ve done or leave a compliment.

* Pay for something for someone else: their coffee, lunch, car wash, pizza, groceries, dry cleaning, etc. Even if you don’t have much to give, give what you have. How fun would it be to have someone pay for your coffee while you’re standing in line? If you’d enjoy it, chances are someone else will too! Get creative!

* Give someone a flower or two! May Day is coming up in a few days! May 1st take one flower to each of your neighbors and wish them a Happy May Day or hang the flower with a little card on their doorknob! See a mom struggling with her kids in the store? Give her a single flower. Some florists actually give away free flowers on May Day just for this purpose!

* Take a meal to someone! Can’t afford a full meal? Bake some bread or cookies. The options are endless!

* Offer to baby-sit for another couple.

* Do some yard work for a neighbor you know could use some help – heck do it for someone who doesn’t “need” it.

Those are just a few thoughts to get you started! Now get busy giving back and let us know what you did and how it went!

Come on, we can do better than this!!
