It's been a few weeks since I have written. I started an entry a couple of weeks ago but didn't feel led to finish it. This week, I want to talk about giving. I know that the best gifts I've ever received come from giving to others. Your gifts don't have to be monetary. A kind or encouraging word can a make a world of difference to someone who is struggling or sad. An anonymous card left on a desk or *gasp* sent by snail mail, a hand written letter or note can lift someone's spirit. I'd like you to think about a time when you gave a gift with no expectation of reciprocation. How did you feel? I know that sometimes I struggle with giving... of myself, my time, my words. I need to work on it! I have a friend who is great at it though, he inspires me. Always has kind thoughts, words of encouragement, post cards to let me know that I'm remembered. Those always bring a smile to my face...REAL MAIL. I love real mail! Today, I'm giving you a gift of real mail. If there is someone that you'd like to send an anonymous note to, I'll write the note and drop it in the mail for you. Maybe it's a co-worker who you'd like to thank or encourage. Perhaps it's a family member or friend. Just fill out the contact form with a name, address and your message. If you don't have a particular message then just fill me in and I'll pray about it and compose a message to the person that you'd like send a note.
