The Spirit of Giving


The Spirit of Giving shouldn’t be limited to one season but should be something we all do on a daily basis.  Christmas has past….Hanukkah continues for another day, and the new year begins tomorrow.

Will you make a New Year’s resolution?  Will you stay up until midnight to watch the ball drop in Times Square?

Hal & I are celebrating our 23rd anniversary today by having dinner at wonderful little french restaurant, Pescadou Bistro, in Newport Beach.  Is there anyone else who is reading this post celebrating their anniversary or birthday today?  If you are, let me know and I will add it to my first post of 2017….or, even if you are not celebrating an event and want to share how you spent the last day of 2016,  please let me know.

I would like to begin 2017 with this quote from Gandhi, “The best way to find yourself is to lost yourself in the service of others.”  Isn’t that what Soroptimist is all about?  Being of service to women and girls?


“Today I give thanks to everyone who has been part of my life’s journey” – anonymous

Until next year,
