29 Day Giving Challenge

"Give one thing away each day for 29 days. Why? Because to see your world change, you have to DO something to change your world."

When you go to the home page of the 29 Day Giving Challenge, those are the first words you will see. I read about this challenge on another blog. I only wish, now, that I could remember which blog because I'd love to give that person the credit for sending me to this site.

I started my journey in giving. Today, I gave some of my time. I visited Sister Sharon who is in a nursing home. We both enjoyed the visit.

Tomorrow, I have a bag of beads ready for a friend whom I am meeting for lunch. She's a jewelry designer. I hope that she likes them.

After that, I'm not sure. This is going to be a real challenge.

The community of the 29 Day giving challenge is also very kind and welcoming. It's amazing to read the stories and how lives have been changed. I'm looking forward to the change. Perhaps, a bit of peace will come from this.

Mother Theresa once said, "
God doesn’t require us to succeed; he only requires that you try."

This is one way on the journey to try.
