Tonight I was reading a quote by Mercedes
McCambridge which said, "A rich man can afford to be generous to many." There
are many quotes about money related to generosity, and that is nice, but it
isn't very encouraging. Generosity is something that any one of us can practice
every minute of every day. It is an activity, and though it can be related to
things, it is more often no-things that is the driving force around the
I like to relate to something that anyone from any
station in life can do and being generous is something that fits that bill. It
requires no money. It is more an attitude that leads to the activity.
It doesn't need to be altruistic. It often isn't
even recognized at the time it happens. And, it can be done is millions of
different ways. A smile is generosity in action. A wave, a hug, a loving glance,
a bit of admiration, a mental wish of good will, a handshake, a shared
experience, a helpful hand, a listening ear, a comforting voice, being a mentor,
giving encouragement, sharing love. All of these are generosity in action and
all can be done by any one, any time, for any one.
Thank You For Your Generosity To Me!
