The Wednesday Challenge ~ Pay it Forward

Last weeks Wednesday's Challenge went really well and I'm thrilled that so many of you joined 
in and participated with me.  Challenges are even better when they are strengthened by friends who are so eager to support an effort to do something good or reach out and help those around us.  
And I know that many of you missed out on last weeks Wednesday Challenge but are excited to join in on this one:

Today's Challenge will be to Pay it Forward!!!
While this will sort of be a fun challenge, it may require a little more effort or going out of your way, but isn't that what makes a challenge even better??? 

ALL of us, Okay not all of us, but many of us know how much coffee makes our day! 
So just imagine how much more it would make someone else's day if we were to bring someone at work a cup of joe, or buy the person behind us his or her lunch/snack.
We've all heard of those pay-it-forward chain reactions where a drive-through has well over 15 cars all buying the person behind them their coffee. 
I'm not expecting this to happen (or maybe it will, you never know!), I'm just hoping we can brighten someone's day 
through a little act of thoughtfulness and kindness.

On a personal note, I've even had people standing in front of me at the grocery store offer to throw my few items onto their bill and simply as an act of kindness.  It may only have been a few dollars worth of groceries, but it's the gesture itself that brought a smile to my face.
Let's make an effort to do this today ~ bringing smiles to other people's faces!!!! =)

Feel free to keep what you do private, but feel free to comment letting me know 
whether or not you're up for the challenge and get ready to Pay it Forward TODAY!!!

Feel free to extend this Challenge into Thursday as it's easier to do in the morning when people are drinking coffee. =)



  1. I'll definitely be paying it forward!!!! :)

  2. By the way, are you on twitter?! I'd love to follow you if you are!

  3. ooh love this challenge! I am brainstorming now:)

  4. What a sweet challenge!! It is always better to give. :)

  5. This is great! I love the drive-through one, that has happened to me before and I thought it was so fun. It bolsters the feeling that humans can, actually be kind to one another!

    On a different note, I just want to let you know that I tagged you in a little blog award/writing game thing in my post today. There is, of course, no pressure to write a post about it if you don't have the time or desire. I just thought I'd let you know! :)

    I hope you're having a wonderful day!

  6. Hi Miss Maggie! I nominated you for a Liebster Award!

  7. Is it bad that every time I hear a drive through pay it forward I go... what about me?

    I try to pay one thing forward each day. It makes me happy to make someone elses day!
