Give

Moe (my lovely bride of 36 years) and I feel extremely blessed.  In fact, I simply don’t know a man more blessed than myself.

That said, we feel a powerful obligation to give in return, to try to share blessings with others, somehow, in ways that carry meaning.

Here are three ways of giving that seem important to us:
  • The gift of time.  NOTHING is more important than the precious time we have on this planet.  Gifting it to someone or some worthy organization is most rewarding.
  • The gift of attention.  Few things are as meaningful to others as when we are fully present in our interactions with them.
  • The gift of charity.  Giving from our abundance (whatever that means) centers one in a powerful way.  Our favorite charities are St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (http://www.youtube.com/user/MyStJude) and the West Texas Rehabilitation Center (http://www.westtexasrehab.org/).  Both do remarkable work in meeting the needs of those who have been stricken by debilitating and/or life threatening illness or disability.  Neither charge for their services. 

Give! 
Give often.
Give much.
Give meaningfully.
Give without expected reciprocation.
Give thoughtfully.
Give thanks.
Give freely.

Give!
