I was gone before 10:00, returning home only twice all day. Once to let the Aussies out, the 2nd time to let the Aussies out and do up some dishes. I did manage to make our bed also at some point or another, I am just not sure at what point.
Before I had left the house the first time today I had been working on a "Pay It Forward" project for The "Crabby Cabbie" trying to get it into motion today.
My first stop downtown Wiarton was at the Wiarton Salvation Army where they were very helpful by contributing to the Crabby Cabbie for the Food Bank by photocopying me 50 copies of the above for me to pass out to local Wiarton Businesses to display. Thanks Linda !
After I had a couple of other errands done, I circled back to the Wiarton Salvation Army as today was the first day Bruce Area Recycling was dropping off Food Collected for The Peninsula Community Food Bank.
With the Thanksgiving and Christmas Season Holidays fast approaching the coffers at the local Food Banks will need extra food stuffs so they do not get totally depleted at such times.
I also contacted the Wiarton Echo and the Shoreline Beacon newspapers asking if they will also spread the word on behalf of the Crabby Cabbie. We have since heard back from the Wiarton Echo that they will be running it in next week's edition. Thank YOU Wiarton Echo !!!
In-between calls today I managed to hand out all but eight of the fifty hand-outs this afternoon to local Wiarton Businesses. Hopefully I will have more to hand out in Saugeen Shores by the end of this week.
When did I return back home today? after I had met up with my Crabby Cabbie Rob at the Wiarton Subway for some Dinner, it had been almost 8:00 pm. It really was a busy all around day.
Over the years I have been blessed in many ways, and still am, being helped or supported in some form another, so paying it forward can come easy to me most days. It might only be smiling at someone I pass on the street, or a good morning or hello ... it does not only have to be by giving material, Paying It Forward can also be given with only a slight gesture of kindness.
How do you find yourself "Paying it Forward"?
My eyes are burning, with me barely being able to keep them open. I hope this post made some kind of sense this evening, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
