Joy of Giving - Week 19 - Card 19

To all my Joy of Giving companions, this week the card is an easy one - For Our World.

A few weeks ago, I ended up feeding a litter of stray pups for 2-3 days. But I won't recount that as my Joy of Giving experience.

I would like to follow this card "from the beginning" as it were. I realised that I had been taking a few shortcuts (like recounting the reconnection with a cousin from three years ago instead of saying Sorry to someone I broke a bridge with recently - I am working on that now) and I intend to get back in to the Giving Mode, in the HERE and NOW, right away.

This week I shall attempt to feed a couple of strays on the street (chicken and rice - boiled together without salt or any other seasoning - works for dogs) and post my experience here. This one sounds easy but is going to be tough for me because I am not an animal lover and birds scare me (Why? Read about it here...)

Hopefully with the help of my children who love all animals, even creepy crawlies, I will be able to give a lil Joy.... Please wish me luck!
