29 Gifts in 29 Days-- Ready, Set, Go!  
As I mentioned in my last post, starting today, December 1st, I am starting a campaign to give 29 gifts in 29 days as a way to herald in the 2008 holiday season. This is the brainchild of Cami Walker at 29-Day Giving Challenge. If you have a five minutes, watch her video to find out why she started this. I think it is a bang-on idea! I suspect that it will work wonders to prevent HFFS (Holiday Fizzle & Fatigue Syndrome).

For my gift today, I helped a colleague with something that was causing her to suck air and NOT exhale. Her relief at my unexpected help was the coolest gift back to me. I am stoked to hear from a number of you that will be joining me on this path! I hope you'll share.

29 Gifts doesn't have to cost a cent. Exercise your creativity and ingenuity. Be alert.  Each day, ask the Holy She, the Big Guy in the Sky, or your Inner Guidance System to put you smack right in front of a need. Then watch what happens!

In abundance and light,
Mary Hershey

I'm In!
Hi, Mary!

One of the things I've noticed is how you might think you're too busy or too tired to give, but...you're really not! Giving is actually a great pick-me-up! It lasts a while, and there's no crash either!

Love you,

Neriza

Re: I'm In!
This is so COMPLETELY true, isn't it? Thanks for coming by and sharing this, Neriza!

The gift I gave to someone on Friday is still making me smile.

Mary,
My horoscope yesterday said: Giving is wonderful, but be sure to give something of value rather than some old junk you're glad to be rid of. A reminder to me to feel the journey rather than just go through the motions.
hugs

Ahhhhh, ever so good to remember. Something of value-- my challenge for today. I'll get on it!

Thanks, Beth!
