Pay it Forward

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Over the holidays we were assigned an assignment called "Pay it Forward. We are supposed to do one or more acts of kindness and ask nothing it return but maybe expect "Paying it Forward". I went outside and shovel some front yards of nearby homes on Jan. 3/09. I did this job anonymously and put cards inside their mailboxes saying Pay it Forward.

How I Pay It Forward:
I went outside and got our shovels and marched to the front yard. I picked random homes and got to work. I shoveled this house's front yard, its front lane and the side. It was very hard and I got very tired but at the end, I saw that our work had payed off. Kevin took some pictures of me working hard shoveling. After the hard work I felt happy that I helped someone. I asked nothing in return expect asking them to Pay it Forward.

How I Pay It Forward:
Over the holiday I also babysat my nephew Ryan and let my sister Linh and her husband have a night out. Babysitting Ryan was very fun, he likes to watch movies and often likes to play hide and seek. After Ryan goes to sleep and the job gets easy. I just have to watch him if he wakes up.

Can one person make a difference?
Yes, one person can make a difference and sometimes that person inspires the whole world that they believe they can also make a difference too.
