August 2011-
I am starting a 29-Day Challenge to give one gift each day and see how it affects my life. I have always considered myself a giver, but I feel this challenge will challenge and focus me on giving more. I was inspired by the book 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving can Change your Life. I ran across it 2 years ago in a bookstore in Springfield, MO, and I titled a piece of paper 29 Gifts. I found that same piece of paper the other day, and I saw it as a sign to start the challenge. You can learn more about the book and challenge at

After 1 month of giving, I have continued this challenge in giving and sharing the stories with others. Hope you enjoy reading about my adventures with giving!

Day 33: Supportive words

Today my gift was sending a Facebook message to someone I rarely see face to face.  I noticed their status said somethings that pointed me to thinking that they were upset about something.  Sometimes we see that others are going through something, but all too often we ignore these people and think they will figure it out on their own.  Especially in this world of social media, when someone cries out for help, we think they are simply trying to get attention.  Today when you see those messages of someone needing help, send words of support, words of kindness.  We all can do a little to make an impact in those around us.
