Happy Christmas to you and yours on this lovely holiday Saturday.
Today's give is easy for all of us to do... time. Today I am giving my time to my family.
It’s the best gift you can give over the holidays.
Thank you to all of you who have participated in our 25 Days of Giving experience. I hope it has inspired many of you to think about all of the things you can do without spending money. Giving meals, giving hugs, giving time, giving love. It's easy, simple and appreciated by all more than you can know.
Let's continue the spirit of giving well after this holiday season.
Thank you for giving your time to me. Now, let's go share it with the ones we love.

We are one day away from our last day of Giving and of course Christmas! Even though our season of giving is coming to an end, the spirit of giving will extend throughout the new year. Our 25 Days of Giving Campaign has been such a joyous experience for all of us to share together. Each story, comment and give has inspired me to give more. You are all such inspirations! Thank you for joining in with me and the Eat-Clean Diet® Team. Keep on giving!
Today's give is simple, I am going to give my family as many hugs as I can. Give someone close to you some hugs and love!

We have so few days left in our 25 Days of Giving. I want to continue the giving spirit well after the holidays. Will you?
Today I am giving my husband help with his Christmas wrapping. We are going shopping for a few small gifts and then we are having a nice meal, lighting some candles, pouring a glass of red wine, and learning how to tie ribbons and bows.
It's a small but simple gift of my time to share with him.
What are you giving today?

25 Days of Giving continues today... but only week remains!
What have you been giving?
Today's give is simple, but heartfelt. Many students are plugging away to finish up their last few exams of the term. My daughter, Kelsey-Lynn, finished her finals on Thursday, and my daughter, Rachel, will finish her exams on Tuesday. So to help her out, today I am giving her a care package to help her get through her remaining exams. Is there an exhausted student you can help?

Today is the Robert Kennedy Publishing Christmas potluck. I am sharing the holiday spirit by making my coworkers Grandma's Favorite Oatmeal Cookies from the original Eat-Clean Diet® and a big urn of coffee. This is a tried-and-true recipe, but unfortunately it isn't terribly clean so this is a little bit of a give to myself today, too.
Enjoy the recipe below:
YIELD: 24 servings
2 1/3 cups unsalted Olivina margarine

Can you believe we've been giving for 2 weeks already! How do you feel? I am loving this and want to continue it through the New Year. Remember, one small "give" goes a long, long way.

My top 5 right now are:
1) The Time - The Black Eyed Peas
2) I'm Not Afraid - Eminem
3) Firework - Katy Perry
4) What's My Name - Rihanna
5) Indestructible - Robyn
Do you have any music you can share? Even burning a CD and sharing with a friend is a great pick me up!
