Pay It Forward

     When I got home today and checked the mail I had a surprise. My Momma had sent me a package, it was unexpected. I was wondering what could this be? I immediately ripped it open to find the movie New Moon. I have been waiting forever to watch it. I know, I know, another Twilight nerd. That I am, a love story is one I can never resist. Plus Allison sent the first book to me and said, "I am not going to bother you but when you are ready read it please". Well, thank you Allison!
     I want to tell you that I love getting mail. I don't know what it is. Maybe because I stay at home, a little surprise like mail makes my day. Well my Momma's unexpected gift got me to thinking, who can I now Pay it Forward to? This is only the second incidence this week where someone has done something kind for me or my family. On Saturday Tyson, Rylan and I went to the Alamodome to watch the Senior Game, Texas Vs. The Nation. Well after Tyson complained about the parking I knew that the tickets were going to be an issue all their own. Well while waiting in line to get tickets a lady came and asked us if we would like free tickets. Well we of course said, "yes". As we were walking to our seats I told Tyson, "Now you know we have to pay it forward". Two times in one week, this must be someone telling me something. I know you are thinking, your Momma sent you mail, big deal,  Momma's do that. Well yes, my Momma does things like that all the time for me. But how often do I do that for others, Pay it Forward?  Being my own family or a stranger, what can I do to brighten someones day?
    So I am now on a mission to Pay if Forward just like two people have done for me this week. I will send a family or friend a special gift out of nowhere (just like my New Moon), and I will find a stranger to do something nice for as well. Thank you Momma, woman at the Senior Game, and God for my reminder to do something nice for someone else.
