Giving is such an important element to living a life rich with purpose and meaning.
It provides necessities and brings nourishment to those around us, and can give us great happiness and satisfaction.
It can help us to feel better about ourselves and our ability to touch the lives of others in need.
It is a powerful expression of love that pours life, vitality, and happiness into the lives of the recipients, encouraging them to extend those blessings on to others and pour them forth into the world.
And yet we often are focused primarily on the personal benefits we receive from our giving that we tend to overlook the positive impact that our gifts might have in the lives of others or think about it to only a small degree.
As gift givers, we have the responsibility to give a gift that will really make the person receiving it happy and fulfilled, and not simply give a gift that we feel they should want.
Giving with Love
