Mail Love...

Last week I received some wonderful mail love in the form of a Pay It Forward prize all the way from this stupendous blogger...

It couldn't have come at at better time really seeing as the trip is sneaking up rather fast now...and there are so many lovely tiny sized Burt's Bees goodies here, which makes them even easier to pack and travel (I have to confess that I spread the love to Mom and Rozz as well, and gave them some of the fun little yummies)

I actually met Burt at the local health food store a few years ago...he looks just like his cool drawn picture on the packages (he's the bearded man, not the cows or the bees) He is an extremely inspiring person who donates a lot of his money to the Sierra Club...prompting me to think while I was in the store, "I wish I was a business owner that could donate money to a great charity" and then I realized that I am a business owner than could do just that...and it didn't even matter if it was as much as Burt or not. So, I started saving all of my change, and now by the end of each year, I have a little money to give away to whom I really want to...

It's a wonderful feeling. And, it was also wonderful that Geggie at the blog where I won this wonderful gift also donated money to a charity of our choice as well...

(there was also a package of chocolate that I am currently inhaling the scent of before I dive in that I received as well...for an entirely different yet equally important reason...for that I bow deeply in gratitude and leap for joy at the same time)

Now, I'm going to have to come up with a wonderful Pay It Forward contest for Foolsewoode...

(YAY!!)

Gotta love those kind of packages! And glad to hear you are donating to charity. It's funny how giving can be one of the most rewarding things we do in our day-to-day lives.
