I hope all have taken time today to give back to someone else! As you know yesterday we started our 8 Days of Giving Challenge. We got a comment earlier and I’ve had people attend the event on my facebook so hopefully by Day 3 more of you will partake in the challenge.
Today I did something I’ve been meaning to do for weeks but never remembered to do it. The route I walk to my yoga class always has me pass this gentleman that plays the flute — it is a glorious sound especially when you finish a good yoga session. Well I always want to give him some money for he has the can and he plays in all types of weather – rain, sunny, snowing, or just like the other day sleet. Today I made sure to put whatever change I had in my pocket (which was about $3 – much weight relieved from the bag) and was praying I would see him and I did! He was playing but as I put the money in I told him how I enjoyed his music and wanted to do this sooner. It made me feel so good — I don’t know how much money he makes in a day but I wanted to let him know he is appreciated for he makes my wonderful peace continue even after yoga.
