Love & Sunshine

I like to do little things for people. I like to send cards, packages and get gifts for people....even when it's not their birthday or christmas. I love to send handwritten notes & cards to my friends and family and finding just the right gift for them. In this fast paced world we live in, sometimes it is so nice to receive a little something in the mail that you weren't expecting. It is so easy to do everything by email...the art of letter writing is all but gone!

Just last week....the kids' got letters in the mail from their Nana. They were so excited and Mallory wouldn't even let me read her's to her for a while. She was reading it to herself and when I asked what it said she told me, 'Mally Mally Mally Nana Nana Mally'. This is the same girl that pulled the Twilight book off my book shelf yesterday and was trying to read it. She amazes me.

A couple months ago my friend Denise at EatPlayLove had a post about Paying It Forward, she wanted to spread some sunshine! I'm all about the sunshine! In fact my favorite song of all time, the one that reminds me of Colorado and that I want played at my Funeral is Sunshine on my Shoulders by John Denver.

Last week I received my package of sunshine in the mail from Denise! She sent me a Body & Soul Magazine and a mixed CD of awesome music. It came at the most perfect time (at the end of a frustrating day) and lifted my spirits. The next day when I listened to the CD she made for me I was reminded of my special friendship with this wonderful woman. I felt so loved and happy!

So here is the deal...the first three people to comment on this post will receive a special package full of Love & Sunshine sometime this year. The winners in turn will need to post their own "pay it forward" for their readers and then they will post and the general loving project will grow and grow!
