If you haven’t read my post, 29 gifts you should if you want this post to make any sense. Or don’t….if you like to fly by the seat of your pants. I had a thought creep into my head yesterday, and like the thoughtful girl that I am….I let it stay for awhile before I decided to kick it out. And the longer it stayed…the more I liked it…kind of like the stray cat that showed up at my Mom’s house 5 years ago that was only staying overnight…that is still there, and probably sleeping in my old bedroom.
And here it is: I want to record 29 days of spontaneous, from my heart giving. And I want to provide a space for other people who are intrigued by such an idea…and would benefit from holding themselves accountable here, as I post each day. I know each of us..especially Moms..tend to give quite a lot already. But this is a different kind of giving. It’s over and above ….it’s intentional…not planned. The kind of giving that causes you to be thinking all day long..what is my gift for today? where can I give?
The healer Mbali, the painter of this beautiful picture of giving has said if you forget a day, start over. The energy builds over the 29 days, and will bring a new kind of joy to each us, depending on what area of our lives is in need. I could use more joy. And more than that, I have never once given, and regretted it. I’ve neglected to give..and regretted that. I’m starting tomorrow, and I would love to hear from all of you. Journeys are always more fun when you have fellow travelers:)
