After seeing my old friend, Yeop, post this pay it forward initiative, I have also decided to participate.  The first 4 people  who comment on this status with "I'm in" will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year.  No teasers on what it will be, but it will be thoughtful, and very clearly from me :-)
Make 2015 awesome I'm participating in this Pay-it-forward initiative: the first 4 people who comment on this status with "I'm in" will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year - anything from a book, a ticket, something home-grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise! There will be no warning and it will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy.

These 5 people must make the same offer in their status. COPY THIS TEXT on your profile (don't share) so we can form a web of connection and kindness. Let's do more nice things for each other in 2015, without any reason other than to make each other smile and to show that we think of each other. Here's to a more enjoyable, more friendly and love-filled year!

This is a pic of my 5 month old son.  This weekend while checking out at BJ's Wholesale Club, the guy checking my receipt stops and says, "Oh, for a second I thought that was his real hair."  I was so caught off guard that all I could say was, "Um, that IS his real hair."

I know that I blew an opportunity for a great comeback....what would you have said?

I work for an insurance company and this was an ad on the back of one of our industry magazines.  Some acronyms should never be re-purposed...

Our Deepest Fear...
Fear is, unfortunately, a big part of my life. It creeps its way in from so many directions that sometimes I am simply paralyzed into inaction. It's something I struggle with daily and I know I'm not alone. These quotes echo each other and resonate with me ...
