Generosity – Give and Give Some More
Being generous is a form of art. A generous gesture
can take most any shape. Getting ready for a visit with my brother's family I
find myself thinking of some black duffle bags.
That’s right! When my son was
born my sister-in-law, Amanda, showed up with three big bags of clothes. Now, this may happen every day. In this case, they traveled a coupla thousand
miles, with toddlers in tow. Amanda, as
it happens, had gathered clothes my nephew had grown out of AND she petitioned
neighbors and friends to do the same.
Imagine our surprise at the airport…all those bags! Clothes for our son.
and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing." Simone de Beauvoir
