Pay It Forward

I have just finished reading a wonderful post over at Rinas blog Our Slice Of Heaven Now Rina has another blog called Past and Present where she wrote about helping others to settle in Australia when they come here from South Africa.. While I have not moved here from a troubled or war torn country I did immigrate to Australia to start a new and better life and do understand the trials and tribulations of getting used to a new land and culture, now I'm not sure I have done anything quiet like Rina, in helping other immigrants, but I have in the past fostered troubled teens and earlier this year welcomed another woman's children into my home to raise as my own at a time when I thought I would settle to being a Grandmother and not a mother again after so many years.. Maybe this is not paying it forward exactly... but I am going to take on Rina's Pay It Forward challenge.
From here
I will make a handmade gift for the first 3 interested people who comment on this post. I have 365 days to do it in. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise!
The catch is that you must participate as well: you must have a blog and before you leave your comment here, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going. Just cut and paste this one if you like, which I did. *Change the From "here" link above to now link to my blog on your new post.
Bright Blessings

Hi Wendy, I think looking after kids is a wonderful thing esp fostering troubled kids, maybe the product of troubled parents. My youngest is 27 so not sure if I could take that on again at this time in my life. I love your background. Please let me have you address so I can get a parcel off to you.
