I came across this little poem about giving by Cleo Wade:
Doing What You Can With What You’ve Got
And even when I had not a penny
in my pocket, I still knew the
joy of giving.
I gave my time.
I gave my spirit.
I gave my heart.
I gave myself fully to the moment and
even through my tears, I gave
my smile to the world – it
needed it more than I could
The act of giving has the potential to aid in our journey of healing. When we set aside our own moments of feeling blue to give even a smile to another person, we have created a motion that also reverberates inside of ourselves.
