Pay It Forward

Posted on: August 23, 2008

This is an old  movie but a good one! Darcy is starting her own Pay it forward.  I decided to play along. I really love this movie. I bought it to watch almost 7 years ago on my “date” with Jimbob. We started the evening by attending a pre Thanksgiving choir concert that he was singing in. I am not particularly fond of Choir music but managed to finagle a date with him to it.( Long story but it was worth it. HEY I married him didn’t I?) We planned to watch the movie together afterward but ended up  talking and talking and talking and (sigh) I fell in love. Later after we were married we finally watched the movie ( I watched it alone before this) and cried.  The character of Arlene was someone I could relate to a little to well because of my past experiences with drinking and AA. If you have seen the movie you know you love Haley Joel Osment’s portrayal of Trevor. If you haven’t seen the movie I encourage everyone to see it. I am going to re watch it myself!

This is what the PIF Exchange is all about. I’ll send a gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange! I don’t know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week…LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that’s a promise! The only thing you have to do in return is then ‘pay it forward’ by doing the same on your own blog.Can you imagine how big this could get?

So do I have any takers?  If you are reading this and there are already 3 comments please visit one of the commenties to find a spot in this awesome exchange.

I loved this movie and still cry every time I watch it.

I did the pay it forward this year myself, I hope you get many comments regarding it, I enjoyed it very much

I’m in! And I know just who to pay-it-forward to. Great idea. Also, I love the movie–one of the all time great movies!

I’m sure your movie will find a good home. 🙂
Do forgive me for blunderbussin’ into this post, but you asked about my Paper Bag Tote pattern. Yes, it’s my own design,(sorta..smiles…there’s nothing new under the sun, is there? quote one of my favorite authors;) but it’s not in tutorial form, yet. When I get a free week to sew more & take pics I’ll be doing it…soon I hope. The bag is about 11-12 inches tall & has a cloth covered corrugated cardboard bottom, though, so it’s not practical for heavy items..just for stuff like knitting projects, etc. Have a great weekend!

yup, a true tear jerker film, love it! Hey , i got a wonderful gift the other day i so wnted to thank you for!!! my daughter has already grabbed the bag but i didget to keep the sweater, thank you so much!! I am going to hang it on our tree this year.

[…] I am still looking for 2 people to pay it forward! […]
