D25 Monday my gift was a luxurious 90 min foot and leg massage to my partner who works in heavy boots & on ladders all day.
D26 Tuesday my gift was connecting with a friend who has moved out of state on a long phone chat.
D27 Wednesday my gift was to myself having a day for me to do chores, play video games, and go out to my knitting group.
D28 My gift yesterday was to shift my thinking about someone who is harming themselves & children & animals as someone who is sick (like an alcoholic - they didn't choose to be that way. They're not able to control ____. However it is their choice to not get help but they are in deed - sick in their mind & heart & spirit.) This act of compassionate thinking was quite a mental shift of they're doing ___ to us, to __ the animals, to ___ children, etc. but rather than they're sick and they need help. Someone I feel sorry for and yet don't excuse their behavior.
