As much as I love the actual giving, I love the space around the giving, there is something even more special about it. I love the anticipatory energy as I look for opportunities to give... it is truly spiritual somehow...
On Day 5, I was shopping at a little grocery store, and saw a handwritten note attached to a cup looking for donations to help folks pay their heating bills. I rooted in my purse for some money, but had none. I decided to ask for cash when checking out, and put a crisp 20 dollar bill in the cup. The clerk was very grateful, and I am grateful I have the luxury to help.
