For some time now I have been thinking of starting some new holiday traditions. While I love to receive gifts, I enjoy giving them even more. This holiday season I want to start something that I hope to continue for the rest of my life. I want to make it truly a season of giving.
Therefore I am trying an experiment between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Every day I will perform a Random Act of Giving. I want to go beyond the gifts for friends and family. Now to just figure out how!
My reasoning for this? I am thankful for all I do have. Hubby and I have had our struggles over the years, and, as life is always full of them, I am certain we will come across more obstacles as time goes by. Beyond the physical objects we possess, we are rich in other, just as important things: love, friendship, humor, joy...Those feelings that are there even when times seem dark.
Starting on Sunday, November 25, I will begin my Month of Giving. Feel free to join in …and to share your Random Acts of Giving as well.
