Backing up to where I started reading about Crazy Love this morning was again on A Place Called Simplicity. Linny (the woman who writes the blog) put out a challenge and asked others to jump on board. If you know me, I mean, really know me... you know that I already believe in paying it forward in great and small ways. And yes, even to random strangers. I don't expect anything in return. I give from my heart, when the Spirit moves me.
I'm excited that now I have a better title for what it is I do ~ because, frankly, simply being philanthropic was not the best way to describe it. Let's face it, I also live paycheck to paycheck and that just didn't fit with what I have been doing over the years. After all, my wealth can be described by so much more than money.
So on this thankful Thursday, I have let my fingers follow their way through blog links and found a way to spread a little more Crazy Love! It was a two-fold donation, of sorts, on this day of also recognizing Earth Day and giving back to Mother Nature. In all my craziness, I have also assisted a fellow Mom blogger in her goal to bring home another one of God's children.
What a feeling!
