Day 511 Giving is a gift

Today is Wednesday. Today, I spoke with a dear friend whose birthday it is today. She said that she got a bit a grief from someone who gave her a gift card for her birthday. My friend used the card to bless someone else because that is what she wanted for her birthday. I suspect the person who gave my friend the card felt disappointed that it wasn’t used by my friend on herself.
I think people forget that it is more joyous to give than receive and for my friend who struggles financially, when she has the chance to give, it brings her tremendous joy. It is a gift for her to give.
We all like to get things but there is something to be said about providing especially anonymously for someone in need.
That’s what I love about my son. He is a very giving soul and he doesn’t expect anything in return. He doesn’t have an ego to stroke.

Go do something special for someone and do it secretly if you are able. Oh you devious people..what fun you will have.πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ’•
