The concept of a Pay it Forward is simple...You do something nice for someone, then they do something nice for someone else and so on and so forth...the kindness keeps going and going! Sounds GREAT to me! I found an online Pay it Forward and I couldn't resist joining in.
So here's how it works...By signing on, my commitment is to make and send a gift to the first 3 people who post a comment to this post requesting to join this exchange and who promise to Pay It Forward to 3 other persons, and so on.
I am not exactly sure what my gifts will be just yet, but I promise you it will be a gift made by me and I will send it to you within the next 365 days. This way, it will be completely unexpected and will be that much more rewarding. By signing on, what YOU then have to do in return is to Pay It Forward by making the same announcement and commitment on YOUR blog. I am very excited to be participating in this wonderful venture and I hope you too will join me.
If you are one of the first 3 that sign up, please be sure there is a way I can contact you through your blog or email so I can get your contact info. So... Who will be my 3 PIFs???

I often go walking thru meadows of clover
and I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the armfuls the whole meadow over,
dear mother all flowers remind me of you!
I do thank my Mother and Dad for my love of flowers.
These flowers were a mystery! I found them on my table and I called several people who I thought might have sent them..but no, not them. Then on Sunday sweet sister Collette Steel said...did you find some flowers on your table? and the mystery was solved! Thank you so much. They are so beautiful and I feel so loved!

After Easter was over, Ron went to work and everyone else went home Katie stayed the night to help me, as I am still broken.
I did get my cast off, but I am now in a boot, for 4 more weeks. My Doctor said I could try to cheat a little but he still didn't want me to put any pressure on my ankle. So I tried to cheat and it is not ready to be walked on! I will try again in a week or so. Katie was such a good helper! She got me water and went all by herself downstairs to get us a snack. It was good not to be alone. Thank you Katie!

The Jake Doan Family April 2009 LtoR Ashelyn, Misty, Gideon, and Jacob
We had a joyful family day yesterday. Natalie, Sarah and Jacob all came with their families. They were all in there Easter finery. We had such a fun day complete with a feast and Egg hunting.
Yes we are missing a picture of Sarah's Family. She took the pictures of everyone else but just couldn't get her family to cooperate. Oh Well....
Andrew came to Easter also and I believe HE started a plastic Easter egg fight. The egg fight was hilarious as Erinn and Seth had fallen asleep in the living room, where the kids were going thru their Easter treasures, and had no idea they were in the middle of a war zone.

They just make the best of everything they have.
We just had our Stake Conference and they talked again about getting out of debt and not getting in more debt, planting a garden and the importance of living frugally. For me this has been a necessity for most of my life and being the Polly Anna I am I have always made it fun. They quoted the famous
Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do with out!
My Mother, Father and Grandmother both taught me these skills. I am so thankful. I am so grateful this is not a hardship for me. I am also grateful I taught these values to my kids. They know how to live on a shoestring. When they were small I don't think they knew how we struggled. If all we had was potatoes to eat, we had a french fry bash! The less food we had the fancier my table setting! Macaroni tastes really good on China with candles glowing! So enjoy every challenge and see the blessings in it!
