Well here it is the last day of 2010.
And I can officially mark off Challenge 55 for the whole year I have managed to find ways to incorporate the home-made into every gift I gave. With the exception of leaving the boys a surprise DVD when I went to women’s camp but I probably made them dinner too so I think that is okay!
Starting this blog and completing these challenges has been an amazing experience for me. The sense of accountability and achievement have been so much a part of these 100 challenges.
The things I have enjoyed the most are the ones that have made a difference to others – delivering a cake with Master 4 and hiding while it was discovered, making a quilt to raffle, leaving a random note under someone’s window wiper, buying a coffee for a complete stranger.
I have loved the specific time it has made me spend with special people.
I have developed a new confidence in my cooking ability and my commitment to trying new recipes.
Another unexpected bonus has been the blog-sphere I have become part of. The kind comments of others. People I know who want to follow my blog. People I don’t know joining in. These are things I treasure.
100 challenges has been a gift to me and I sincerely thank you for encouraging me (even by your visits if you have never commented). Thank you for joining me along the journey.
2011 – new year, new focus. I hope you will join me again.
Wherever you are may you find richness in relationship, courage to try new things and the intimate knowledge that the Creator treasures you and you are stamped with creative potential.
