The Kissing Hand

My Giving project

So, today's giveaway is also a book. 
Another favorite mine.  No coffee stains.  All pages are present.  You may think it's not a big deal for me to give away books during my "Send me to Cali" campaign, but if you are a Barnes and Noble/Amazon whore like me, you'll know I can never have enough books and I love them all. 
The Giving Project Rules of Engagement are:
It has to be something I have enjoyed, spent time with, admired and loved well.
It has to be something I will not replace.
It can be new as long as I  like it and it would've meant something to me if I had kept it.

Today is my Mom's birthday.  Though this gift was earthly for just 28 years.  (She's been in heaven for 14) is it my best, truest, most astonishing gift and I did nothing to get it.  My little soul got her.  HER.  And in her In her honor I hand you this.

A kind thought, a moment of truth, quiet/air/what is.  Place it across your heart and breath it in.  I know.  It feels good.  Now give it away and look back down at your hand.  It's still there.  The Boomerang Affect.  Happy Birthday, Mom.  I love and miss you!

P. S.  That's her engagement ring on my right ring finger. 

Don't forget to help send me to Cali.  (if you are so inclined)  Click and vote.  Tell me you did (1 entry) and you'll be in the running for my beloved Chi Running.  All Giving Project winners announced and gifts mailed on 4/16.  You can vote everyday at this link until 4/15.

What's your intangible boomerang gift?
