Quick notes here, I elaborate more later
Helped a mom (a total stranger) with an injured boy (he fell off his bike) while I was watching my son practice soccer by giving them a ride home (about two blocks away).
But that was really not an "intentional" gift... it was helping someone in need, which is something I do daily when called upon.
So my REAL gifts on Day 3 were getting my son bathed/showered and tick-checked as soon as we arrived home so he would ready for bed early for a change and so that it didn't land on my husband's shoulder (again).
While my son started to watch a movie, I went outside an watered the seeds my husband planted on Sunday. It had rained for two days, but now the ground was dry. I remembered him telling me that the seeds needed to be watered every day for 7-14 days. My husband is terrible about watering seeds and plants. So since these seeds are important to him and he was working late, I watered them for him.
Next I watered the raised vegetable gardens in the backyard. I saw the 12 BIG bags of mulch that I asked him to move because they were covering our Black-eyed Susan's. My next gift was to my husband... even though I've been sick and don't always have the energy or strength, I moved all the mulch instead of reminding him again...
I know these don't seem like much, but with my illness I have been pretty useless the past three years, so having the strength and energy to do something for our family and not put all the burden on him makes these seemingly simple tasks a gift for my husband.
