I think of November as a month of being thankful, and December as a month of giving. On this weekend in-between, I am doing both.
A few years ago, my husband came up with an idea of recognizing someone in his past, who has had an impact upon his life. I adopted the custom - and around this time each year I try to let someone know how much they have impacted me; either with a note, a phone call, or sometimes a gift. Today, I am sending a thank you note with a Starbucks card enclosed in appreciation of a person's kindness, and we are writing a check for a donation, in memory of someone special.
I plan to publish lots of posts about giving and gifts in December! I am particularly excited for what I have scheduled for December 15th: a one-day opportunity for bloggers to win a truly helpful prize! Be sure to visit here that day, and enter to win! Even if you are not a blogger, a story will accompany the sweepstake, which I hope you will enjoy.
I am thankful for this recent sunrise, so I'm giving you a glimpse of it in my photograph today:
