I the link to this article from CNN on the power of giving from my aunt last week. Although, it is from December and is geared toward the holiday time, I thought it would be helpful to have this reminder during January. Giving of ourselves, our stories, our time, our resources, our gifts, allows us to see the big picture. Giving expands our hearts, our worldview and allows us to feel and express our humanity.
Giving can be as big as traveling across the world to help those in other countries learn how to grow food, or gain an education. Or as small as giving of a smile or a helping hand to a stranger. We have opportunities to give on a daily basis. What is your giving story? How has giving of yourself and your gifts enhanced your life and those around you?
