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.

That is a gift that speaks volumes. Your consideration is definitely a way to spread happiness to your husband and yourself. Thank you for sharing!

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.

My gift for today - day 1 - was to call a friend who needs help moving light outdoor furniture used by her employer from their house to the storage location in the horse barn. I checked the weather (snow today, but a bit warmer the next two days) and gave her a call, and told her I would wait to hear from her about what time this weekend would work). The gift is less in the doing and more in the being peaceful about the ambiguity of the timing.

Hello I'm Karen Gerber and I just finished reading 29 Gifts and that book really moved me. I live with chronic health issues and related very closely with Cami both in terms of the health challenges and the desire to try to find a new way of living focusing on giving, positivity, spirituality, connecting with like-minded people etc.

It's been FOREVER, but--hi, everyone! I was also a part of the original site; I joined while I was in college and made a lot of lovely friends, so I'm hoping to see some familiar faces, even though it's been so long. I do miss the old site--especially all of our blog posts!--but I'm very happy to discover that it's been revived here, at least in spirit! :)

Hi, I'm Joan Otto! I joined 29 Gifts not too long after the original site started and had completed 3 full cycles and several partial cycles of giving. I'm in a place in my life right now where I'm trying to surround myself with positivity, so I'm taking the relaunch of this community as a sign and starting a new cycle TODAY. Many blessings, friends. I am so glad to find you all again.
