Most of you know that I work in a yarn store. Many of our patrons and students are involved in charitable works, and I support them as best I can. One such is the Shoe Box Project - decorate a shoe box and fill it with things that someone in need can use - school supplies, toiletries, other goodies. So, I gave them a little donation the other day to help with back-to-school stuff. And, today, Tye came to the shop with a Thank You present for me - a shoe box for me to give to someone.
It's beautiful with a little stuffed animal tied on top. I almost cried.
I who have so much - gifted with something for giving.
Love is that way. The gift that multiplies as we give it away.
PS- I called my godson today. He's been clean and sober now for five months. Thanks be to God.
