The Beauty of Giving
We give because we can-
Not for what we received, nor perhaps ever did.
We give because we are made better by it, and it allow our souls to grow.
The act of giving wears many different faces, often rising from a variety of obscure places,
You give a smile, I take the joy!
Together we create a stream of cascading positives,
that when unhindered will flow into a river.
It is a small act - often with intent and many times without-
Why we come together every year to remind ourselves of the infinite value of giving,
To give thanks that we can and will - over and over again.
And so we create the change that influences the world we want to live in,
It starts between just two.
It could be me and and it could be you.
