How do we pay it forward to others .Anyone who knows me knows I love clothes . I passed this on to my daughter she also loves clothes . There are times we visit each others closets and borrow each others clothes .
Every year I go through my closet to see what either does not fit me or I know I am not going to wear anymore and put the clothes in a pile . These clothes get donated to the needy I also do this with my shoes , hanbags and coats .They are really appreciated by those they are given to every year
At work we donate food to families that are not as fortunate as we are . All through the year I drop off food to me neighbors . I may buy a dozen bagels .I cannot eat them all so I will drop off a half a dozen to my neighbor across the hall . It is small things like this I try to do all year around .
One day I was short money when food shopping I forgot my credit card and for some reason I had not enough money in my wallet . The cashier went into her own wallet and gave me a dollar . The next time I was in the store I gave her an envelope with a $10 gift card . She did not want to take it but I insisted I told her how much I appreciated what she did for me .
There are many other pay it forwards I could talk about but sometimes they are best kept personal and between friends but they know who they are .
I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday and continue to pay it forward everyday throughout the year this year and every year
