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.
Today I was trying to comfort my son and accidentally banged his elbow on the table as I sat him down. Sometimes I wonder how my children will survive with my accident-prone genetics. :) Check out my post on the genetics of clumsiness and the reminder to slow down sometimes.
Taking down the Christmas decorations always leaves my house feeling cold. Today I tried something new with an old sign and some of the flowers I usually on use in the fall. I think it turned out nice and definitely warmed my heart to give the space a new look.
visiting my husband's grandma and taking her some flowers is not something new. This week I gave money to my daughter and son and told them to pick out the flowers. It was up to them to work together to pick something out, keep under their budget, and purchase the gift for Grandma. They did a terrific job! It felt good to give them a chance to be independent and take pride in doing something nice for someone else.
It's time for trying new things! Let one of those new experiences be providing yourself with the chance to win the January Great Giveaway from 29 Gifts.

Less than three sips into my first glass of New Years Eve wine, I knocked over the entire cup in a fit of excitement to show my “good” coat to a friend. The wine flowed right on over to…
My sister and brother-in-law stayed an extra night with my parents after celebrating Christmas. My brother-in-law drinks coffee; no one else at my mom's house does, so I brewed an extra large pot this morning and delivered a big ol' cup of java to him for breakfast before they had to travel home. Nothing warms the heart like good coffee.
Good Giving Weekly December 20, 2017 Greetings 29 Gifts Community,
CAMI’S WEEKLY MESSAGE Abundance vs. Scarcity: Do You Say Yes?
The most common reply I get when I invite someone to sign up on 29 Gifts and commit to give their 29 Gifts is, "I'm TOO busy. There's TOO MUCH on my plate already. I can't add one more thing to my daily 'TO DO' list."
The intention of this project is to help people become more conscious and learn to celebrate the gifts they ALREADY give everyday. That book you read to your little girl last night before bed; that's a gift. The dinner you whipped up the other evening for your next door neighbor; yep, that's a gift too. Showing up to work without complaining and doing your job well; you guessed it, it's a gift. It all "counts."
It's hard for people to believe that they actually don't have to add ANYTHING to their daily to do list to successfully complete this Challenge. All that's needed is a shift in perception so you're mindful of the gifts you offer to the world. Remember during December we are encouraging you to GIFT OUTSIDE THE BOX. Try to give without spending money. Here are some low- or no-cost giving ideas. Please comment to add your ideas. http://follr.com/Communities/29Gifts/MemberProfile/101366 Read more at: http://follr.com/Communities/29Gifts/Discussion/20587
