Best news first; I’m getting Sarah for the weekend 27th , the evening we have Christmas Night here in town.
Got an email from my brother yesterday saying it was ok for us to pick her up Friday after school;)
I posted about Christmas Night last year, but this time it’s getting even better with Sarah too;)

Now back to the catchphrase, about something that has been bugging me for years now!! But I want you to understand it is not something that any of you have ever done to me!!

Fact #1) I like to make people happy, some of you might know that.
Problem is, that I don’t expect anything in return.

Fact#2) I like to do something for other people, some of you might know that.
Problem is, that I don’t expect anything in return.

So how to explain this with out sounding like a self righteous jerk or someone angling for approval….

Well here goes;
My latest project in trying to keep my hands flexible has been making SPN bracelets.
I put the word out in a Comm. And I got more than 25 replies from people that I know and some I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting before.
I made the bracelets - the last three went into the post today;) - but what the problem is comes here…some people in my rl asks me what I expect to get out of this!!!!!! My answer is;” nothing, except making people happy”. And they don’t believe me, but thinks that everything has to be done so that you get something out of it, preferably something material.
I offered the bracelets for free because I thought that some one might like them. It took me a long time to put them out outside my flist, but I think they were pretty enough to give it a try.
What I have gotten from this is; new friends, some of you gave me kind gifts like paid lj and graphics and postcards and some of you made a donation to the cancer research.
I’m very happy for all of that, but I would have made the same bracelets even if none of you had done that.

I’ve always been like that liking to make people happy, and seeing them happy is what I get out of it.

So when I send you postcards, small gifts, emails and stuff it is because I want to. Not because I have to and not because you then should feel obliged to send me anything. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love all the gifts and cards I get from you people, because I do.
It just mean that I don’t want you to feel guilty if I send something to you.
♥love you all♥

Pippi....you are without a doubt the most heart warming, wonderful, kindest person I have ever met on the internet.

I believe this mentality is very related to the jobs we choose, not to say we're Florence Nightinggale, but the paycheck sure is an indicator. ;)

Og så må du lige rette mig hvis jeg tar helt fejl, du er SOSUer ikke?
Jeg er pædagog.

Jo jeg var aftenvagt på et plejehjem inden jeg blev syg og blev fyret.

you're very sweet. There should be more people like you in the world. I know some people have a hard time believing that there are people who are willing to do things out of the goodness of their hearts.

I received my bracelet in the mail yesterday. Thank you so very much its absolutely beautiful. I love it so much. =)

Ohh also since you're in my graphics community feel free to request if you see something you like. =)

We have only very recently become friends and everything I see about you or read about you is that you are the sweetest, kindest person - never change, you are one of a very few XxX

You are way to kind to me honey, thank you so much I´m so happy that I´ve met you♥
Nov. 14th, 2009 04:47 pm (UTC)
Du er fantastisk min kære :). Jeg kan godt forstå din glede over at give, og det er bare enda et træk som tilhører din vidunderlige personlighed :)

Nov. 14th, 2009 08:34 pm (UTC)
Tusind tak søde jeg blir helt forlegen.
Jeg elsker at give, derfor kan jeg ikke købe julegaver i god tid, så giver jeg dem bare og må købe nye;)

*points at icon*

I completely understand you. I guess some people just don't get that the joy is not only in receiving a gift, but in seeing the joy you cause in others by giving something TO them.
Nov. 14th, 2009 08:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you honey you are so right and you are so kind and sweet to me.
♥big hugs♥

You said it all perfectly, Pippii.
You have a wonderful generous spirit and soul and I think you will always be the lovely person you are.
Just be patient with the people who don't yet 'get it.'
*big hugs to you*
Nov. 14th, 2009 08:36 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much buzzie♥
You give me way to much credit though.
I try to ignore those who doesn´t get it, but they won´t always go away;)
♥big hugs back♥
Nov. 14th, 2009 05:37 pm (UTC)
You are one of the most selfless people I know. There are too few people like you in the world.
Nov. 14th, 2009 08:37 pm (UTC)
Oh honey, I thank the spirits for the day I met you♥

Tusind tak søde.
Det er nemlig rigtigt, folk leder efter skjulte motiver i det man gør....men vi gør det bare alligevel ikke????
♥knus og kram♥
Nov. 14th, 2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
are you sure you're not a fallen angel? I kinda doubt that you're human, carrying the same chromosomes as ours.

I love you more than words could tell and I'm so happy you're a part of my LJ life
*hugs tight*
Nov. 14th, 2009 08:41 pm (UTC)

Nov. 14th, 2009 08:42 pm (UTC)

The greatest joy is giving, and you are living that. Don't worry about people's views. You are seriously awesome; don't change that no matter what people think or say. Love and hugs :)

♥hugs and loves♥

People have gotten too cynical. They just can't believe people would do something just to help someone else or make them feel better.
"Problem is, that I don’t expect anything in return."
See, that's not a problem, it's a wonderful, wonderful thing, and don't let anyone tell you different!

Nov. 15th, 2009 09:21 am (UTC)
Cynical, yes that is the right word. The world is way to cynical now.
Sure, it is not a problem for me, but for them you know. But I´m not gonna care about them anymore.

I´m so happy that I met you honey and that you´re my friend.
I love makeing people happy and sending cards and stuff.
And I´m so happy that I can bring some joy to you and your family. Hannah is a great and brave little girl and I really admire your aunt, so I´m glad I can do a little for them that way.
♥I love you too, you are an amazing girl and you have done so much for me and my family♥
Big hugs and Kisses

I wish I could be like you, dear Pippii. *hugs*

Btw, did you know that in our language, your username means 'cheek'. I always imagine kissing your cheeks everytime I hear/read your name. :)
Nov. 15th, 2009 10:57 am (UTC)
Aww thank you so much honey♥
"Cheek" I like that, you are so sweet.

love your icon:)
Nov. 15th, 2009 04:16 pm (UTC)
Awwww my Kastanje Honey... I don't know what to say.
I fully understand you because I think the same as you do. I like to make people happy around me but I do not want anything in return. It isn't waht friendship and kindness is about.
Stay as you are. You're wonderful.
It's sad that some people couldn't understand and appreciate.
Nov. 16th, 2009 01:23 pm (UTC)
Aww sweetie thank you...
Yeah the world is more cynical now, maybe that is why people like you and me are rare, and others don´t get us.
♥hugs you back♥

What you get from making spn bracelets is something infinitely more special than material gain could ever be and the fact that you give them as gifts makes the bracelets infinitely more special than any purchase could ever be.........your rl friends obviously don't get it........I actually feel quite sorry for them........they have never and probably will never feel the way we feel about everything you do for use, all the inspiration you give us and all the love we have for each other........we are far richer than they will ever be.....
Nov. 16th, 2009 01:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks Jayne for all your kind words.
♥hugs you tight♥

Thanks honey for your kind words....
And Yay for Sarah and booo to the ducks;)
Nov. 16th, 2009 03:31 pm (UTC)
I like to think that I am similar to you. I like doing things for others when I know it will make them happy. This in turn makes me happy. I don't expect anything in return and it gets frustrating when someone will ask me why I did it when I get nothing back. Can't I just do it for the sake of doing it?

Pippii you are a kind person that has a heart of gold and inspires most of your friends list to be more like you. Never change!! We love you just as you are. :)
Nov. 16th, 2009 04:26 pm (UTC)
I think you and I are very much alike Andrea..we both like to make paople happy and feel their joy and happiness as a reward. I have gotten so much from you the past years and I´m so happy that I can call you my friend.
♥Love you♥
Nov. 18th, 2009 12:43 pm (UTC)
I pretty much believe that as friends one is not obligated to send or give something back when you receive something. not at all but I guess it's just the way we often feel. other than that I think you could donate the money one wants to pay you for your bracelets
Nov. 18th, 2009 07:05 pm (UTC)
Some of the recivers actually donated money to the Cancer Foundation, and I´m very grateful at that.
