December1st With the new month and the season of Advent beginning, it is time to change focus. November was for giving thanks and I want to hang on to an attitude of gratitude and to the awareness of all the things for which I can be grateful. But the theme for December is generosity. I read a suggestion in the paper yesterday: a challenge. It sort of goes along with my theme for October, which was lightening the load, but has a slight a twist. The challenge is to get rid of things every day this month. Give, sell, donate or trash one thing on December first, two things on December 2nd, three on the 3rd and so on, until you get to thirty-one things on the 31st. I’m going to try. But I want it to be in the spirit of giving, rather than getting rid of. I’ll attempt to give things that are dear to me and I know the recipients would love to receive. I’ll let you know how it goes. Anyone care to join the challenge?
