Giving


I like giving, it makes me happy. I like giving things, I like giving love, I like giving time, I like giving help, I like giving sypmathy and support. I like giving when it is appreciated, when people are happy to receive what I give. I tend to give freely, and really and honestly expect nothing in return. Giving makes me happy.


Today I bought something for a friend of mine; something she had wanted for a while, and I happened to come across one in a charity shop that I thought would suit her. I bought it, and as we were in town, took it straight round to her.


The look on her face was ample reward for my small gesture, and has made me smile for the rest of the day.

What a lovely gesture Mrs L - to think of someone else whilst you're browsing around. I bet your friend was just blown away!
