Paying it Forward

Pay it Forward

As disappointed as I have been in many people for never backing up their word in 2010, there is always others out there that make you forget. It's no secret that I get frustrated with people that are promise breakers but tonight one family made me think what life is really about it. One can say many words but really you aren't much of anything till you back it up with action. Action is the difference between a talker and a doer. Action leads to paying it forward!

The Murray Family

It was a little after 4pm today at the Dollar Tree Store. All I could see was an outline of a little boy. Hood on and two eyes sticking out. Standing outside in -2 degree windchill ringing the bell for the Salvation Army donations. I am always moved when I see things like this. Kudos to you guys for doing one thing that many of us would never do because of weather. I am proud to know you. The world is a better place when people like this pay it forward. Getting out there in horrible weather and sacrificing one's self is truly what helping others is all about.

Thank you for showing your true colors this Christmas Season and for making my day. Really you can say what you want, but there is no paying it forward without action! Thanks Murray Family for taking action!

Vin - It was all Seanie's idea. And I want to give you some credit for it too -I think you have been a great influence on the kids (and Kip and I as well!) Thank you so much for being a good friend and a great person! - Steph
