Pay It Forward

The Gift From France
The Gift From France

Do you believe in random acts of kindness?

Last October, Barbara from Home in France introduced me to the “Pay It Forward” game.

According to the rules, “the exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward in their own way.” I was one of the commenter who agreed to receive a small gift (you bet I was!) and to pass it on to other bloggers.

True to her word, Barbara sent me a small gift that I received this week end: two nice bookmarks. She must have guessed I love reading!

And Barbara picked the perfect gift! One of the bookmark has a quote of Bob Dylan (whom I love!): “How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?” — perfect for travelers like us! The other one has pictures of the famous Petit beurre LU. I was born and raised in Nantes, France, and the symbol if the city is constant rain the Petit beurre LU, because that’s where was based the The Lefèvre-Utile biscuit factory (see a picture of the factory tower I took when I was in France in March).

So merci beaucoup Barbara!

Now, I’d like to send you guys something. According to the rules, “I am going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting” to three random commenters. I’ll use a random number generator to pick the lucky ones. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on.

This is the third time I receive something from fellow bloggers: I got a troll from Norway, from RennyBA, and more recently, Shionge sent me a surprise package from Singapore. We are all used to email and virtual networking, but I’m telling you, receiving a surprise by regular mail is a great thing to experience.

So… comment, be nice, and I’ll be your Santa Claus!

Send me your address, girls, and wait for Santa Claus!
