If you’re a frequent reader or giveaway enter-er you’ll know that I always include a “fun entry” for my giveaways.
I always scheme them up and they range from singing the alphabet … backwords, to dancing around the room, to screaming. I have all sorts of fun inventing what random things I’m causing you to do on your couch or in your office–it really does make me smile!!! Although I use Rafflecopter now so it makes it harder for me to respond to you all, I really do read every single one of these entries–and I often smile and laugh out loud as I do!
In my post awhile back about my big scheme to Give the Gift of Sleep (go check out that post if you missed it, it’s pretty cool!) I had the “fun entry” to pay it forward to someone and then let me know about it. I was expecting a lot of smile type comments, but the ones I got were pretty awesome! The fact they didn’t expect anyone but me to see/know made it that much more cool–and it so lightened my heart to hear about these Random Acts of Kindness that I just had to give them a shout out! So to end your 2013 on a high note, here are some sweet every day acts of my readers who pay it forward–many of whom appear to be guys, which is very cool!
