Ripples #656: Giving!
For our tribe of 29,822 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.

Among its other benefits,
giving liberates the soul of the giver.
-Maya Angelou, submitted by Mary in Madison, WI

I don’t think you ever stop giving.
I really don’t.
I think it’s an on-going process.
And it’s not just about
being able to write a check.
It’s being able
to touch somebody’s life.
-Oprah Winfrey

As many of us count down the days to Christmas, some people are preparing to gather with family/friends to celebrate holiday traditions. This time of year can be filled with joy and fun adventures AND it can also be a time of stress and frustration.

You may find that the best gifts you can give to yourself and others won’t cost you any money: patience, gratitude, kindness, and perhaps most of all, a complete and compassionate acceptance of what is (instead of wishing people or situations are different than they are).
