the season and it's spirit...

there are many wonderful people out there in the interwebs.
there are a lot of douchebags too, but we're not gonna talk about them today.
i found a woman on here a few months ago with a wonderful sense of humor.
She has since proven to be witty, intelligent, and kind.
She had some extra money this holiday season and decided to pay it forward.
What she started snowballed into the biggest showing of holiday spirit i have seen in a long time.

If you need a warmth in your heart i urge you to go read her post and comments.
If you have a little extra to spare this year, i urge you to help out.
If you have been hardened by the holiday consumerism, i urge you to read her comments.

Spend a moment.
But bring a tissue.

Have a merry christmas and a wonderful new year.
and remember that paying it forward comes in all shapes and sizes.


edit: what a whirlwind of generosity that was, and all in 3 days!!
A writer from the Washington Post caught wind of it, and wrote 
an article that can be found here.  What a wonderful showing 
of Christmas Spirit!! Blessed Be.
