There’s also a little story about a homeless man who shed a little light on my understanding of giving. . .

With all the frenetic energy of the Holidays, I’ve been setting intentions left and right these days and thought I’d start blogging more about on this little journey of mine.

A little story. . . A Homeless Fella, Generosity and Gratitude . . .

This past Saturday, I was with friends in Houston, going to grab lunch. We parked and were greeted by these two homeless men who asked us for money/contributions. On our way into the restaurant we passed on giving to them, but on our way out, we handed them a box with a couple of tacos. One of the men thanked me and insisted that I wait just a moment. He pulled a soggy plastic bag of random women’s jewelry (all thrift store quality, obviously found items) and insisted I sort through it to find a piece that suited me.

He wanted to reciprocate my gesture of bringing him food with a gesture to me, even though he had only the clothes on his back and this little plastic bag of random cheap jewelry. I selected a little silver bracelet and thanked him and went on my way.

I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude and generosity. . . It seems like the more we are thankful for what we have, the less we feel we need and the more we give from a place of love – not obligation or guilt – the more we receive and recognize abundance. . . .

Live in Love. . .
