Cloud Lift Give Away

Several weeks ago I received a beautiful hand made pin cushion in the mail. In fact there were two, one to keep and one to share. It was a completely unexpected act of kindness and generosity from foxyloon at Cloudmongers and Soup.  Although I'd metaphorically picked myself up and dusted myself off from a miserable experience, foxyloon sensed I needed a little love. There is nothing like the warm feeling of being on the receiving end of goodwill. I keep the pincushion beside my computer, it is just the right size to give a little squeeze when I need a goodwill pick me up.


If you would like to win this goodwill filled pin cushion, and the pretty scarf I chose to go with it, this is what you need to do:
Post about an act of goodwill i.e. kindness and compassion, on your blog and leave me a comment with a URL/link to your post. I'll put the links into a post when I randomly draw the winner of the give away. By entering you give me permission to use your stories in future posts-with credit of course.

Your stories don't have to be about grand gestures and saving the world, just observations on everyday goodwill.

Nicole at  My Garden Diaries wrote the following as part of her most recent post.

"A pot of happy flowers for my daughter. The most fantastic woman works at our local Trader Joe's. Every time she sees my daughter she let's her check out all of the groceries from our cart while taking the time to teach her about being a cashier. She makes her feel so special and on this particular day she let her pick out flowers because my bean had fallen earlier that day and had a bad scrape on her face.
There really are so many awesome people in this world!"


Deadline is March 29th. Winner will be posted on March 31st.

  3. This is a beautiful idea, Susan. I was blessed with so many acts of kindness during my recent illness and surgery, I must think about a posting. P. x

    1. Hi Pam, I am so glad you are doing a post. Sometimes I've been surprised at who steps up to help and who doesn't. I have an aquaintance who I rarely see but who is one of the first to offer comfort.
