A Special Request...

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I will find happiness in doing the right thing. I pray that I will find satisfaction in obeying spiritual laws.

No video or attempts at wit or humor today (well, maybe just a little)...
I have a special request for anyone who stumbles upon this post...

Anyone who really knows me is aware that I have serious difficulty asking for any kind of help. But today, like the prayer says, I am going to try to do the right thing. Today, I am going to really try to pay it forward.



Last June, my colleague Teri and I were at the end of year scholarship awards ceremony. And much to our dismay, we learned the scholarship set up for a former friend and teacher that suddenly passed away at a young age just a few years ago, had just run out of funds.

Apparently, this bad news must have been stewing in my friend Teri's brain. Because after she started reading my blog, she came up with an idea of her own. She started writing articles, as some of you might have seen on this blog, and planned to keep the scholarship alive with any revenue from the articles. So far she's made about 17 cents.

"If I can earn just a few pennies an article per month, I can do this," she said enthusiastically on Superintendent's conference day.


Yesterday, after work, even though I'm behind on my own work and blogging, I helped her set up a blog for her cause. I told her that I would do anything in my power to get the word out for her Pay it Forward Project.

So today, I humbly ask all of my friends and followers to...
*Visit her blog and subscribe
* surf her articles
*perhaps put her widget on your blog (you can grab it from my blog or hers)

I ask you to be a part of this rewarding pay it forward project.

If each and everyone of you that reads this, asks three of their friends to help out, and they tell three friends -- this might just work.

I love you guys... thanks for listening. And thanks for keeping me sober. xoxoxo

So you see, kindness really is contagious...

Can you please help Teri pay it forward? Visit her Blog
