Talk About It Tuesday: A Gift of Love

Talk About It Tuesday

Talk About It Tuesday is a daily blogging theme.
Talk about specific things you are doing this week to make a positive difference in your family line or about what you are doing to meet your family history goals.  For Generational Change-makers (those who have “Joined the Quest” at, identify yourself as a GCM and tell what you are doing to meet any one of the three goals to 1) Glean Wisdom from the Past, 2)Live Mindfully in the Present, or 3) Prepare Confidently for the Future. Consider recording this post in your journal (history-in-the-making) or personal history records

I am a GCM and I'm living mindfully in the present today.  I am feeling an abundance of GRATITUDE for the loving kindness shown me and my husband from my second daughter, son-in-law and their young children yesterday.  They came over with a surprise "gift" of their time and energy.  The Fall decorations were put away (no small task) and out came the Christmas decorations, up they went, everything unnecessary was put away, the room was vacuumed, and dinner was even cooked and served.  All that was left was Christmas Spirit and a mother's heart that could "rest" from the unyielding strain of concern about how the mountainous task of decorating the home would get done this year.  What a gift!

Sometimes it's the gifts that don't cost money that mean the most in our hearts and homes.  Are you considering any acts of love and service this holiday season?  I'd love to hear about your plans
