A big thank you to everyone who did something nice or nominated someone else for the Pay it Forward contest this fall! There were a lot of wonderful vibes goin’ round.
This year’s winner is….Jennifer L.!
Congratulations Jennifer! Jennifer was nominated by Sarah C., a wonderful client and good friend of mine. Here’s what Sarah said about Jennifer:
I am writing to nominate a friend who is always thinking of others. I met this friend fourteen years ago on my first day at Appalachian State. I had moved five hours away from home, friends and family and immediately this Boone-local offered to show me around town and help me with anything I needed. We have been close friends ever since. In those days, she helped me get to my car which was miles from campus, get it deiced and out of the heavy winter snows. Now, she continues to be a friend by sharing joys and sorrows over the miles. Her constant positive attitude is an encouragement to me. Her husband is in construction and the heavy snows and freezing weather have kept him from having much work recently. This puts a financial strain on their family, but she doesn’t worry because of her deep faith and her knowledge that the best things aren’t “things”. She has been snowed in her house over a week already this winter and was snowed in much of last winter, but she doesn’t complain…she just continues to serve and love her family. She called a few months ago to share the news with me that she is pregnant with her third child. I am so happy for her…she deserves good things!
Sarah earned herself a $25 print credit just for sending in Jennifer’s story and Jennifer will receive a $150 print credit.
Thanks again to everyone who participated!
The next Share the Love contest will be starting in February, so start thinking of those Mighty Moms or Devoted Dads you know!
