A Gift For You

I did my Christmas shopping horribly late this year and settled for a number of gift cards, which just seem impersonal and wrong for someone as important to me as my mother but... oh well, too late now. And then there is you, my Tales girls, both those listed to the right and those who make this site what it is with their comments. What to give you?

I was, admittedly, at a loss, and hoped maybe I could get away with not buying you anything. But it just seemed wrong not to honor you, my electronic friends who inspire me and make me think and occasionally infuriate me, but mostly inspire me! And then, as an example of that, two Talesians sent inspiration my way, one in the form of a post, the other as a gift.

So, Merry Christmas. A donation has been made in the name of "The Tales Girls". I love this site and what it brings into my life, so thank you, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!


  • Aw shucks Marian....thanks for the gift....what a thoughtful way to express your gratitude (infuriation and all) to us. Peace Out Talies.

  • I realize I was rude and was not inclusive of our male readers and commenters, who I also appreciate and mean for this gift to be for them as well! Please accept my apology.

  • Awesome!!! I found MercyCorps just recently and I love all the little "kits" they have. Perfect for personalized gift giving. And they have a great rating on CharityNavigator.org!

    Thanks for the gift.
