The giving life
I want to live a giving life. I chose this long ago. I see so much around me that can be changed just by giving something. Sometimes it's a hot meal. Sometimes it's a couple dollars. Sometimes it's a smile. No matter what there is always someone in need. The hardest part is figuring out what that need is. Some people do not like to ask for it. Some people want to pretend it's not there, or may not even know it's there. But we all need something. I have a compelling need to give. Which a lot of times puts me in a bind. Like right now when I'm overbooked. Too much in too little time and I will get it done and be proud of myself for it. But... I will be worn out and need to recover. With three little ones, ok 2 little ones and 1 big kid, I'm realizing my need to give needs to shift gears to a more productive line. I just don't really know how to do that.
