The world works in mysterious ways

Remember yesterday my telling you that I was lucky enough to be the recipient of one of Paula Hewitt's Pay It Forwards? Pay It Forward works much the same as the Random Acts of Kindness we've all heard about. I'll explain more about it when I get my three PIF's done and ready to be sent out into the world. If you'd like to see an example of what I'm getting check out Paula's blog at http://paulahewitt.wordpress.com and scroll down til you see her beautiful paperweights!

Anyway, my point (and I do have one) is that last night I found out that I had also been lucky enough to win day 18 of the '29 Days of Giving' on the Art By Chrysti blog (http://chrysti.wordpress.com)!! Get this....my prize is a book (wait for it) called....'Acts of Kindness - How To Create a Kindness Revolution' by Meladee McCarty. I couldn't believe that I would 'win' a pay it forward AND a book about acts of kindness...on the same day!!! Wow!

For any of you that are unaware of Christi's 29 Days of Giving, please go and check her blog and read her posts. She is a very gifted writer and has been posting some pretty thought-provoking reading. Be sure you also check the comments on each post because they are outstanding. There is a whole community building from her acts of generosity and some of the comments being made are very much worth reading. While you're there, be sure to enter the contest too. Oh, and be sure to check out her art!!
