AT THE END OF THE DAY?
You gave it your best shot?
Left things a little better than you found them?
Isn’t that a day worth living?

As I spoke to my friends this weekend about the gifts they plan to give, a number of them thanked me for sharing the Three Gift Tradition celebrated by my family. Here is the story I shared about it. Maybe you can find inspiration in for your giving here.

GOTTA SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY?
Be a friend to make a friend?
Give love to receive love?

Day 1 - I gave my husband the gift of picking up my stuff off the bedroom floor. We got back from a trip 2 weeks ago and I still hadn't put everything away. He loves things clean and tidy but he never harasses me to be as tidy as he is. I am so grateful for his steady love and acceptance. This turns out to be a gift to me too, because the room sure looks better and it makes me happy every time I walk in there.

I just stumbled on the book 29 Gifts at my library and loved every word. I have been thinking about doing a gratitude project but couldn't quite put my finger on how to do it. This is the perfect way. I'm very excited about being present with gratitude every day and finding some way to give to those around me.

Today I gave the gift of life by donating blood at the Red Cross. It costs me nothing more than an hour of my time, but it will mean the world for someone who needs it! I pray that whoever receives my donation has a quick recovery!!

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU KNOW?
Does anger work? Or compassion?
How about hate? Or kindness?
Fear? Or love?
Isn’t that how you move heaven & earth?

I made perogies for some coworkers today for lunch. They had never had them before, so it was fun watching them enjoy something new!

LOOKING FOR A LABEL?
Something to explain how you feel?
Why not pick an empowering one?
Like wonderful?
Could be self-fulfilling?

CAN YOU PROVE LOVE EXISTS?
Can you see it? Feel it? Share it?
Might not be science…
but see what happens when you give yours away today.

I am grateful for the freedoms that our nation offers me. In a recent speech my friend First Sergeant Curtis Brandt spoke on the terrific impacts made by our military as they do what they consider to be "common" or "ordinary."

Good Giving Weekly

November 15, 2017



Greetings 29 Gifts Community,

GO GRATITUDE

Gratitude is a powerful spiritual tool. It opens your heart and increases your capacity to receive gifts from the universe. The Law of Attraction tells us what you focus your attention and energy on expands. Fuel your zest for life by staying mindful of the bounty you experience each day.



If you have read or listened to 29 Gifts, you know I struggle with mental health challenges. Depression, anxiety, and insomnia have been my companions since I was a young child. I have been clinically diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Major Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder. I am also an addict/alcoholic in recovery. I live with Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia, so physical pain, fatigue, cognitive problems and other disturbing symptoms hound me.



I had my first panic attack when I was eight. I was in the back seat of our old Suburban with my two sisters. My dad was driving us into the Rocky Mountains for a vacation in Estes Park, Colorado. It was snowing and it was dark out. The only thing I could see was the blowing white flakes and the steep drop off the side of the mountain on my left side. I started to cry frantically and hyperventilate. My heart raced and pounded and I felt crippled.
