It is not the size of the gift and so often it is stuff we do in everyday life anyway, we all give all the time. It is just about being open to doing these things with a giving heart and because we want to make others happy rather than wanting anything back. Sometime it is the things we would do everyday but might feel a bit begrudging. So read a story to your kid but thinking how much you love them and giving them you gift of time and making extra effort with the voices and sound effects rather than just trying to get to the end of an evening routine as is sometimes the case.
Anyone else thinking of trying the challenge?
