I enjoyed coming back to the basics of giving mindfully in October and November. Most of my gifts were close to home since I was recovering from a major MS Exacerbation. My gifts have been simple things. I spent extra time playing outside with Ani (our Siberian Husky), took Ani and Charlie on walks. (Charlie is my tiny 4.5 pound pup who hates the cold as much as I do. He usually ends up bundled inside my coat.) I made a boatload of yummy soup and delivered it to neighbors, which helped me meet some new Denver friends. I donated to some breast cancer causes and wore my Elysia Skye "Laugh At Cancer" T-shirt (pic below) a few times in the spirit of our October Breast Cancer Awareness theme.
Our NOVEMBER GIVING THEME: ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE has also been fun for me. I focused on three things I was grateful for each day because when I focus on my blessings, they expand. My list for today is:
Kevin and I plan to move out to the San Francisco area after the holidays if my health and our finances are stable. I have missed the Bay Area since leaving in 2008. It is the place that feels like home to me. I am trusting that if we keep giving, the financial winds will shift and the universe will provide what is needed for the move. By the way, here is one of our wedding pics taken after we got hitched at Denver city hall.
