I like anonymity, I guess that is why I like the 29days so much. You can give just to give and not expect or want attention for it. This week I bought flowers for our church for Sunday. The flowers were in honor of Beth. She is the mom to 3 of my 4 girls. She died of breast cancer much too early in her life. To honor a spirit, I can't imagine doing something in their name to a person in need I asked the church to find someone who was in need of a hug, and give them the flowers. We decided that Mary needed it. Mary is very sweet, she doesn't have any family and recently had a stroke. She is doing really well with physical therapy and doesn't really want visits because she doesn't want anyone to feel obligated to come and check on her. The flowers are now a great excuse for someone to go and visit with her.
I think Beth would like that. For me that was the most outstanding thing I gave this week. I cleaned out my book shelves and gave a few that I thought a women at work would like and I was right. She lives on a tight budget and getting the books made her very happy.
I shared my enthusiasm for life this week and made people smile who were sad. I planned out my Advent/Giving Board this week and I am coming closer to have how I want that arranged finalized. I'm looking forward to it... I hope that the kids and congregation will will participate and get some meaning out of it.
My employers has begun a "sustainability" program. Each month we get a newsletter in which they/we share the ways we are conserving resources, energy, and giving back to the community. There is an internal website to provide feedback. I mentioned the 29 days. They were very excited and are going to feature it in their new newsletter.
Lastly, I donated $30.00 to Cami's cause. I don't think I've spend a better $30.00.
