May is our month to honor our mothers and mother-mentors. Take time to make a call or send a nice note. Consider including a list of 29 Reasons I Love My Mom. Share your giving ideas here and join us for our May 29th Community Flower Power Give. I am excited to be going back home to Nebraska for my cousin's wedding May 25-31. I am glad I will get to see my mom and grandma (who just turned 90) and give them both hugs. It will be fun to reconnect with my family and some of my friends from college who live in the Lincoln and Omaha area.
I let April slip away and took a total BREAK. While you were all stealth giving, I did a food cleanse led by my long-time health coach and friend, Darshana Weill. I worked with doctors to make some changes to my medication, took lots of walks with Charlie and spent time laying on the beach (I even have a little tan). I disconnected from email, facebook, my phone and let my mind wander toward what is next for me -- it's time to buckle down and make real progress on my second book. I also need to get things organized and running more smoothly at 29 Gifts. Thank God for Elly Rose (our fabulous tech support queen), Deb (our Community Manager), Sharon (29 Gifts Ambassador) and all of our Welcome Wagoneer volunteers who keep this site alive and vibrant.
I hope to come out of May feeling strong and clear. Right now I am still detoxing from big diet changes (cutting caffeine, sugar and gluten) and struggling a bit with the doctors to get myself stabilized on the right medications. I appreciate prayers for strength from all of you. Each member of our management team has been struggling with serious health issues in the past two months, so please send some team prayers as well.
Great Giveway: Vera Bradley Tote Bag from DEB, our community manager. See a photo of the bag and leave a comment on this discussion to enter.
