Day 4 was yesterday. I donated to a friend of mind for her Lung Force in Tuscon, AZ walk with the American Lung Association. I have asthma and my father died of emphysema. I also used to work for the ALA so it's close to my heart. I was happy to give to her walk later on this month. Day 5 is today and it is my new boss's birthday. He is from Scotland and likes to let us all know how being a Scot is important to him. I gave him a bottle of scotch from the region in Scotland where he is from. I also wrote a heartfelt card to him that choosing me to work for him has given me the "sweet spot" of my work! This gift especially makes me very happy. I'd like to add that this week I have slept great. I don't have trouble sleeping but sometimes I wake up or don't go to bed on time like I should. But today I noticed what great sleep I got last night AND that I went to be at a decent time. I attribute this to the gift giving so far this week.
Diane, I'm so happy you experienced the gift of sleep after participating in the challenge. The exciting thing is that the gifts keep reciprocating throughout the challenge and beyond. I look forward to following the rest of your journey. Happy Giving AND Receiving!
Day 2 gift went to my daughter. She is really struggling in her first year of teaching and this week is state testing which she has never lead. I sent her an early morning text (which I would not normally do) to give her faith and support and let her know I was thinking of her.
Day 3-on my FB page came up the opportunity to donate for a woman I know with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. So I thought, I had not yet figured out my gift for today, and this one sounded just perfect. This woman is trying so hard to fight and beat this cancer she is an inspiration to me.
I just finished reading the book. Today is March 1 so I decided to begin. My first gift was a conversation with a friend. She was nervous about a training she was doing this afternoon & besides reassuring her she would be fine I shared info from my training 2 weeks ago. She said I'm going to use that! That felt really good.
