Paying it Forward

Here is my youngest with an entire outfit (including the shoes, but not including the backpack) that were "hand me downs".  I have two gorgeous friends, Jenna and Amy, who have been so gracious enough to give me some  of their daughters' clothing that no longer fits.

And my youngest loves them as well!  It's like getting a whole new wardrobe (literally) of gorgeous clothes!  She is still at that age, where it doesn't "have" to be a name brand for her to wear it, but fortunately for her and me, some of the clothes ARE name brands.

To be able to have friends like that who share like that, are awesome!

I love doing the same as well and have clothes that I have set aside to give to a friend (actually 2 friends)

In times like these, it's always good to "Pay It Forward" whenever you can.  Whether it be passing clothes down to help defray costs of having to buy new ones, helping to watch their children, running an errand or two for them, or just helping out in any small way, even by listening, or inspiring someongANY little bit can help.

Let's face it.  Times are tough these days, some, more than others.   There are those, including myself, that are trying to live out their dreams of pursuing some sort of art, or career, or whatever, trying to make it on their own, and having that little bit of extra help, truly, TRULY means the world to us.

I used to be able to give more than I do now, but I still try to find some way to pay it forward,  in any way I can.  Or help out someone I care about in whatever small way that makes their life a tiny bit easier.

Do something nice and good for someone, because it IS the right thing to do.

And it makes the world a better place.
