"I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver."
Another day. Another day of living. Another day of loving. Another day of giving. It's all becoming one to me now... meshed together with a greater good. One person committed to a simple challenge... seeking simple change in the everyday routine... seeking the soul's liberation.
Today I gave the gift of listening to my sister as she talked on and on about the frustration she's feeling at work. She wanted to purchase Jordan Almonds for her daughter's upcoming wedding shower and I emailed her a link to a place online where she can buy them in bulk. I called my 77 year old aunt and spoke lovingly to her for about an hour. My friend is having some construction work done and I agreed to go to her home on Thursday morning to see the work.
Dinner tonight will be simple. I went out to buy some fresh NJ corn, tomatoes, and lettuce. I will make bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches and fresh ears of corn. This gift will make my husband and daughter happy and that will be their gift to me.
