Giving More Make Your Day
Have you ever found that giving more makes your day. When you give more than is called for, you feel good. This weekend a woman won one of our auctions and paid way more than she should have. Unknown to her we are doubling her order. Just a little feel good gesture to make our day feel better.
I think that giving as much of yourself as you can afford is a rewarding way of living. I do not mean excessive giving. I mean giving a little more here and there. Not money or goods like I mentioned above, but giving of yourself, you time and your energy. Giving to strangers and giving to your family.
Sometimes I think Sharon and I are poor, but when we can give what we have to make others smile, we feel as rich as anyone. There is so much we can offer others. Even a smile or a “good morning” may be all it takes to brighten someone's day.
Another incident today was a young woman jogger in our “Poky Walking Park”. The first time around a “Good Morning” to her was met by a brief acknowledgement, but by here third time around our comments about her jogging brought a large smile.
See, we have more to give than we can imagine. Money and what money buys is not the only gift we can give to others.
