29 Gifts - Day 3

Today I gave (shared) a sympathy card with my office and with a friend. I found out an hour before close of business day that a coworker's mother just passed away. I got out a sympathy card because I vowed to be brave and send a card the next time someone passed away. (I have trouble sending them because I never know what to say.) I had bought a stack to keep in my desk at work, so I pulled one from the drawer and made it out, signed for myself and my husband, addressed and stamped it to make sure I could get it in the mail Saturday. But then I decided to take the card around the office and offer to let anyone who wanted to sign the card, too. Everyone not only signed it, they were super happy and thankful for the opportunity - so I'm actually pretty pleased with this gift, even though it's for such a sad event. I also gave the gift of prayers for the family and lit a candle.

And since it's not all about giving, but being aware of the giving and receiving that is constantly occurring in our relationships...

I received, mindfully, a dozen donuts from a friend.

What a thoughtful thing to have done - you can't be shy about this ever again.

Thank you :)
I was going to write today about how I wasn't going to do the postings any more because it feels too weird, but now I'll try to keep it up.
