30 Days of Giving Challenge- Day 3

30-Day Giving Challenge 

Day 3 of the 30 days of giving:  I donated a pound of Seattle's Best coffee beans to our troops.  I was at Border's bookstore, and as I was paying for something, I was asked if I wanted to do this.  I automatically said 'no'- I don't usually do unplanned for giving, unless it is a small amount...the coffee was about $11- which is bigger than a small amount to me.  I re-thought my answer when I remembered the challenge, and went ahead and did it.  It felt good, and it was nice to step out of my normal habits.  I hope a soldier or two or three enjoys a warm cup of comfort.

30 Days of Giving Challenge -Day 2

30-Day Giving Challenge
Checking in with my Day 2 report for the 30 days of giving challenge:  
On day 2, which was yesterday- I clicked over to read about The Glisson Family's adoption story.  By clicking over, and then leaving a comment, $2 was donated to the Glisson Family to help offset their international adoption costs.  I hope you will click over and bless them, too!  
*Hat tip to Meghan @Tuckers take Tennessee for this amazing story

30 Day Giving Challenge -Day 1

30-Day Giving Challenge
I've been undecided about if I was really going to do this.  I like the idea of doing this, I love the idea of blessing others, and I am attracted to the idea of me being changed- in a deep, good sort of way.

But, frankly, 30 days of giving sounds like it needs some planning.  -Some scheduling, some purchasing/making things ahead of time... It sounds like something I would fail at.

But, here I am.

Day 1:

My giving, yesterday was to my children.  I gave them the gift of a mom who takes them to their activities with a joyful heart.  Many days I feel like mom-the-packhorse, as I trudge along, schlepping the kids around to lessons.  Even though I don't grumble about it, I'm sure that my thinking of myself as packhorse probably leaks out into my posture, my face, my vibe.  For the month of November, I am going to practice the art of joyful schlepping.
