This week continued to demonstrate to me some amazing examples of the law of giving and receiving.
I am continuing to make progress on decluttering and clearing out items we no longer use or need. One of the things that has slowed my progress in the past is the desire to sell them vs just give them away.
This week I found new homes for a high chair, baby walker, sleep sack, tiny shoes, and a Christmas tree. People that could use those specific items!
We also shared pumpkin pie with a dear friend whose dog passed (D’s idea) and loaned some winter & baby gear to visiting family!
We were given a pair of snow pants and they were hand delivered (filled a need!), a Christmas plate of cookies by a random fellow (regular) customer at Kwik Trip, major assistance juggling purchases and children at said Kwik Trip, and the time freedom to surprise A at school and help her build her gingerbread house 💗. I received customer orders this week for my business. Wisconsin got its first real snowfall this week and I had a chance to play outside with the boys in it. We spent time with Grandma & Papa this week for a fun quick visit. I am celebrating my 39th birthday today, with my family, including lunch out. I’m grateful for another year of life. My best friend of 18 years sent me gerbera daisies …my favorite flower…a birthday surprise… though she’s on the east coast we are still so close in spirit.
I continue to remember that people and places I am giving to will likely not be the same places I am receiving from, and that’s ok! See a need, fill it, and trust that my needs will also be met.
