As most of you know, I have been a dedicated Lioness since 2005.  We have one little social thing that we do at our club, called Secret Pal.  At our Christmas party we let our previous Secret Pal go on to her new one, and pick a new Secret Pal out of a hat.  The responsibility of being a Secret Pal is to gift something at birthdays, anniversaries, and Christmas - all else is optional.  Most of us end up giving a little sumthin' sumthin' every month.  The receiving Secret Pal just gets some fun stuff, no responsibilities whatsoever except perhaps some gratitude.  Gifts are handed out at the monthly meeting.  Last month, I got an Inspiration Calendar which isn't getting enough use.  I thought that perhaps I could keep my interest in the Calendar if I shared the daily quote.   I don't post on FaceBook (where you can get tons of this stuff), and decided this was a good alternative.  Anyway, you can read my daily quote, and comment, or post one of your own, or do nothing.  It's totally up to you.  I will just add to this thread until December 31.  I hope I learn some good stuff!
