Pay It Forward

Monday, January 5, 2009
I don't have any pictures to share because my camera is broken.

This year for the first time since I have moved to Winnipeg I was home for the winter break and not in Ottawa. I planned on shoveling a few of my neighbours walkways each time it snowed heavily. I would start as soon as possible.

What happened was that my next door neighbour was going away to Alberta for the holiday and she asked my mother if she could watch over the her house. Like collect her mail and shoveling her walkway. I volunteered to do it for her. It was nice to be able to do something for like this for my neighbour. She is in her late 80's or early 90's so I didn't ask her to 'Pay it Forward' like I should have because she is very old and I wouldn't be surprised if she has done favours for others with out anything in return.

One person can make a difference. Atleast that is what I think. If you work hard enough it can happen one wat or another and it all has to start with one person for it to get anywhere at all.
