How bout just Giving Day?

Yesterday was a rainy day. No, it was a rainy, chilly day. Kaitlin had class until 9:15 and then she was home. Her goal was to wash clothes and work on her graphic design homework. My goal was to rest. I did lots over the weekend and my back was begging me to sit and rest for a day, so I obliged it. It was a good day to be all tucked in the house. Kaelyn asked what she could do for me before she left for work and I had her bring in some fire wood. When Kaitlin got home, she started me a fire. She and Marisa kept that fire going all day long. It was just wonderful! We were snuggy and warm inside while it was cold and wet outside.

I spent the day reading the newspaper, watching The Food Channel and surfing on the 'net.

I found a blog that is encouraging November Giving. (I would send you to that blog but I can't find it now). That really got me to thinking about Thanksgiving and giving thanks but am I missing the giving. Am I being intentional about purposeful giving? I mean giving over and about what we give to the church. Are there ways I can give that don't cost any money? I made a list.
Smiling and Greeting folks
Letting even two cars into the lane of traffic when I can
writing a 'good' letter for the bank teller that has given me wonderful service
holding the door for someone
calling to check on someone
dropping a note to someone
doing a chore around the house that I know someone really doesn't like doing (and not telling them I did it)
not complaining

I am going to try to be more deliberate to follow my list and give more. I'd love to say forever but I better just work on this til the end of November.

What is on your list?
