A thought about – Paying it forward


From the FaceBook page – Jody Marie Lappierposted toPaying it Forward ~ One Day at a Time

“My daughter turned 5 years old 4/15 2013. She wanted to make people smile. We bought 18 long stem Roses at Safeway. Grace Randomly handed out these roses to who “she” felt could use a smile. The response was more profound than even I expected.
7 people’s day changed from horrible days to great ones 11 took pictures with her, 3 cried and came back for hugs, and told her how much it meant to them. One I swear held my daughter for 10 minutes sobbing (she was missing her children that day). One woman (at the coinstar) gave her a HUGE gummy toothless smile and told her she now has faith in our children of today. I gave her $10. She stated “I can now buy meat for dinner to feed my family”. I am so proud of her selflessness on her 5th birthday. We need to do this more often. Pay it forward, teach your children!”

    I happened to see this on Facebook last night and shared it on the page I’ve created for my son. Paying attention to the synchronicity, I thought I should share with you his profile and why I created it.

    I’m inviting others who believe in the power of love over fear to become his friends.

    My intent is:

    – to spread the message of the power of love,

    – for Riley’s profile to be a source of encouragement for any situation that may be causing fear in someone, and

    – for this to be a place where people can share their personal experiences with what is possible when we focus on love.

    Have a great day!

      Thank you! I’ve noticed that I’ve had some fear lately with some career and business items, which isn’t healthy. This post and things like you and others do helps! Keep it up. One step at a time, if we all keep showing up and taking some action, things are getting better!

        I agree wholeheartedly! Thank you for being a positive voice for a new way 🙂 We all will get there.
