Pay it forward......

The most amazing thing has happened to me.  A few posts ago I made a comment on the loss of the wonderful doll maker Hannie Sarris.  I mentioned that it was a great loss to the doll making world and that I was 'devastated' that I had thrown Hannie's book out with the recycling!
I received an email from a wonderful woman, yet a complete stranger, who lived on the other side of the world that wanted to make me feel better by offering to send me her copy of the book. 
This came as a complete surprise and such a kind and generous gesture, and I was very keen to get my hands on that book again.  So she sent it to me.  The book arrived today. (With another magazine featuring Hannie).  I am so happy.  My friend wanted nothing in return.  She was quite happy to send the book to me, and insisted that I need not return the favour.  The world is an amazing place.  The internet is an amazing place.  And people are amazing.  Now I know, I must 'pay it forward', so I need to think of what I can do.

The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of asking that a good turn be repaid by having it done to others instead.

So I will keep you posted - I think it's time for a give away.........................
