The joy of giving

Today I definitely experienced the joy of giving. I'm not sharing this to toot my own horn, far from it, in fact. No, giving doesn't make one prideful, instead it humbles us...makes us grateful for the blessings that we have. I was able to give a gift card to someone that I am close to, and that I knew needed it. I hadn't intended for her to open the card in front of me, but she did. And when she did, she cried. She couldn't stop thanking me. For that reason I wish I had done it anonymously, but in this situation that wouldn't have worked. It also gave me a greater desire to do more for her. She is a dear friend, and I am grateful for her in my life.
