Have you ever see the movie Pay It Forward…about the young boy who “Paid It Forward” …in fact, his entire school got involved in paying it forward? Even if you didn’t see the movie, I’m sure you know that the concept is to do something good for someone…not expecting to get anything in return, but in the hope that the person will someday do something good for someone else and so on and so on. This way of thinking means that you’re thinking about others more than you’re thinking about yourself. In my humble opinion, that’s a concept that more parents should demonstrate to their children.
Then a week ago a friend e-mailed the following news report, You-tube to me and I knew I had to share it with you. It’s a MUST WATCH. Hope you enjoy it…Oh, and have the Kleenex handy.
Now, wasn’t that impressive? Instead of thinking about himself, he thought about someone else.
Have you ever been on the receiving end of a nice gesture that you will never be able to repay? Or maybe you were the one doing the paying forward? Share it with us.
