It's been a few days

some days I just can't belive it's already that day in the week. Today seems like one of those days, and just when you think you are somewhat organized life has a way of throwing you a curve ball.

First off a huge big thank you to Jan for the wonderful box of goodies that you sent. Last week Thursday, I headed to my post office to pick up the parcel I won, the Bind-it All, and inside she had put a thoughtful little gift package for Taylor, that was all held together with a cute hair scrunchie. Your thoughtfulness was so appreciated, Taylor's eyes literally shone with excitement when she opened up the little gift bag and found a mini cd album, she can't wait to put the album together with pictures she has already selected, and all the little page embellishments were so exciting for her to look through. Thanks also so much for the extra little goodies you sent to me, my list of things to do has grown and I can't wait to play with all my new items.

A little story to share: Last week I was at the grocery store picking up a few things. The gentleman ahead of me had a few groceries plus a local newspaper. When the cashier totalled his items he suggested he didn't have enough money and asked the girl to put the paper aside. Thinking about how scrapbook designers and lots of my friends are always "Paying it forward," I smiled at the cashier when she started to check out my minimal things, and asked her to include that paper in my monies owing. She did so, and when she had I handed the paper to the gentleman and said, hope you enjoy and when you can do a kind act for someone you come across. He smiled, said thankyou and went on his way, I did the same, feeling a little happier in my heart knowing that I had done something simple to make someone else smile.

I haven't been able to do alot of scrappin lately with all the things that life has pushed my way, but I can take alot of what I have learned from the kind friends I have met on the net and apply those simple lesson to make others happy.
Enjoy your scrappin and be sure to share what you can, when you can, to put a smile on both parties hearts.

What a great story, I love that there are people like you in this world. Lately I have not seen the nice side of people and it had me worried that society was turning but your story warms my heart. I love your layout of Taylor and her Dad, that caption is so great. Enjoy your day :o)
