Paying it Forward One Random Act of Kindness at a Time!

By
Industry Observer with Responsive Pest Control

Hi all: If you plan to visit Seattle, wait until Wednesday or so. It's raining cats and dogs today! Earlier this morning I read a great blog post by Lizette Fitzpatrick asking if we Rainers could send a birthday card to her mother who is turning 80 years old.

I look at this as a random act of kindness and immediately agreed. My Dad recently turned 80 and it made me realize what a milestone that is. For Lizette's Mom, my hope is all these birthday cards will brighten her day. I don't know about you but I'm increasingly interested in reaching out and helping; not only those who aren't as fortunate as myself but those that may be lonely, sad, or even just need a new friend.

If we all paid it forward, I think this earth would be a pretty special place to live. What am I talking about. This earth is a pretty special place to live. Have an amazing day and thanks for paying it forward!

Hi Paul, Nice post. The White House used to send birthday cards out to anyone celebrating their 80+ birthday or 50th+ anniversary if requested two months in advance, I believe. I'm not sure if that is still the case, but it has been prettuy special to have requested them in the past. As a fellow lender, how's things out on the Pacific Northwest?

JoAnn: Thank you. That's pretty cool if it's still done. Lending out here is better now. The year started very slowly and not it's picking up. How are you doing? Take care.
