A Little Poem About Giving

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

have imagined.

Cleo Wade

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.
