[Via Follr.com] MARCH GREAT GIVEAWAY: Autographed copy of The Giving Challenge by Stephanie L. Jones a book inspired by #29Gifts Leave a comment on this post by March 28, 2018 to enter to win.

One month turned into 500 days, and seven years

It seems many businesses and organizations are hosting a special day of giving today. Consider supporting their giving efforts or share some of your own!

Today I got up at 5:00 a.m. so as to finish grading rough drafts early for my students. Will small sacrifice on my part allows them a few extra days with feedback to complete their research papers.

I sat down exhausted this evening. My husband asked what was wrong. "Nothing," I said, "I just don't feel like I got enough accomplished today." He hugged me and told me he knew I did more than I realized. It was so encouraging to know that someone recognized my efforts.

My goal for tomorrow is to show as many people as I can that I recognize their efforts in some way.
