And now it's Thanksgiving eve, and I'm still behind on my 29-Day Giving Challenge posting . . . sometimes, life just doesn't work out the way you expect or intend or want. As my dear friend, Diana, says, I am not in charge (no matter how much I like to think I am!)!
And as my journalistic heroine, Linda Ellerbee, says, and so it goes . . .
Day 15: Myself a vacation. A girlfriends weekend－ the best.
Day 16: An old friend a big (and happy, luckily) surprise. Such fun. :)
Day 17: A toast to 30 years (!!) of friendship.
Day 18: My silence to my spouse (believe me, it was a gift).
Day 19: An etiquette lesson to my daughter. I'm a big believer in the handwritten thank-you note, and I'm doing my best not to let it become a lost art of appreciation.
Day 20: Gifts to my oldest friend, Audrey, and her darling twins.
Day 21: Five lawn bags full of clothes to Goodwill. And a clean closet is a gift to yourself.
Day 22: Thanks/Thanksgiving cards to a few friends and my birth-stepfather.
To be continued . . . still . . .
