Having just finished the audible version of this book, I thought today should be the day that I seriously start this challenge. Today I vowed to give with love. My sister has been going through a rough time lately, and has been resistant to answering her phone for the last 2 weeks. Concerned, and somewhat irritated, I decided to stop by her place and check up on her. I didn't want to go in with a sense of annoyance, though, and I thought to myself how nice it would be to get her some flowers. As I was stuck in traffic at a particularly long light, I saw a man walking between the cars with assorted bouquets! I have never purchased anything from someone on the street, and typically attempt to avoid eye contact. I'm not sure why, but something about it has always seemed a bit shady to me. Anyway, today I was overjoyed to roll down my window and greet the nice man. He suggested a beautiful rainbow bouquet of roses and I was happy to purchase them. He was so thankful and I realized that I unwittingly gave 2 gifts today. My sister was brightened by my surprise visit and touched by the roses; and the vendor was thankful for a kind face among the crowded street and a sale! I believe this to be a fantastic start!

Thanks for sharing, Melissa. As you continue the challenge, giving opportunities will reveal themselves all around you, all the time, ripe for the picking - the right gifts at the right moments. The gifts of connecting are what make life enjoyable. You made two connections with one mindful gift! [APPLAUSE!]

Welcome, I am new at this too... 6 days in... Some days giving is easy, some times hard to know what/ whom... I long for a guide like Cami had... Maybe we are the gift to one another... Bringing inspiration.
