Today is January 1st, 2013. Today is also day one of my gift giving challenge. I am also challenging myself to give a gift each day of this entire year. =) For the year of 2013. Part of my resolutions.
Today I did a two part like gift for my parents who I live with. I love my parents. See I am twenty-eight and I am also disabled and my parents truly help take care of me, between my lyme disease and endometriosis and soon we find out of if I have an auto immune disorder my parents are rocks but also soft hearts of loving kindess.
My parents both mentioned to me that they wanted to stay connected more with others, friends and family, so today I made family New Year's photo cards through a website and when they were done, I showed them to my parents, they loved them. Now once I know how many everyone needs, I will place the order tomorrow.
The second gift I did today was my Mom asked me to go on a walk with her and my Dad down to the lake 'by' our house, which is more like almost two miles from our house and for me with my bone troubles it is far for me on some days like today but I did, had a blast, took lots of photographs, one I used in the card I made today. I wanted to show my parents that I do not only need them for things with my disabilities, the I can give them time for fun things too.
Here is the photograph I took of my parents and our dog above the hill above the lake today. Happy New Year Everyone!
I know the real gift even though I am giving was spending time today with both of my parents. <3
