Thoughts on Giving

Good Morning! I only have a moment today, so I wanted to share some favorite quotes:

On Giving...

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
- Winston Churchill


If you have much, give of your wealth. If you have little, give of your heart.
- Arab proverb


On Happiness...

Whoever is happy will make others happy, too.
- Anne Frank

On Something That Makes Me Happy...

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.
- Jane Austen



During this busy season, it is good to remind myself of these things:

  • Give within your means.
  • Put your heart into your gifts.
  • Find what gives you joy and share that with others.

The things that bring me joy are faith, family, home, and giving. If these are in place in my life, I am content. My wish for you today is that you find the things that bring you joy and contentment.
