Wednesday Words of Wisdom~ Sharing is Caring

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

― Mother Theresa

One of my greatest joys in life is making someone smile, and knowing that maybe, a little something I did put that smile on their face. It doesn’t matter if it’s my friends or family, or the janitor or the hardworking clerk at the Dollar Tree. Just a simple smile or personal greeting could make someone’s day. You never know.

My talents are a gift from God, and my time and efforts are gifts from me to share with others. Sunday, when I took some brownies over to Fire Station 9, I asked them when Captain Desiree would be back, as she was out a few weeks on a medical leave. They said she would be back Monday, so, I got up early Monday and made a huge container of penne pasta with meat sauce to take over for their lunch or dinner. I do love to cook. Just a kinda welcome back for the captain and crew. See those smiles.

Yesterday, I offered to take Bella to the Vet for Mr. Mike. He’s always busy and traveling, on a plane or on the phone. She was overdue for some shots, etc. Plus, he’s always helping me by fixing things, technology questions, unjamming my garage door, replacing my doorbell, coming over when my car is dead, changing smoke alarm batteries, etc. Bella is very comfortable and feels safe with me, so when we spent over two hours at the Vet, it was a nice way to help out.

This afternoon, I met with my friend Rick, a very talented local photographer. He and Isabelle go to St. Gabriel too, and until now, we have been mostly Facebook friends. Rick offered to give me some ideas about putting together a photo book of my artwork and poetry. He had admired one of my watercolors of the historic prison building on the square, so I offered to give him a print of the original when we met. He insisted on paying me, but I insisted that if I took his money, then it wasn’t a gift. Sharing is caring.

There are so many little things we can do every day to share a smile with the world. It just takes a little thought and a little time.

Ok, I thought this one was funny! 🤦‍♀️
