For it is in giving that we receive

Friday, 7 September, 2018

So said St. Francis of Assisi and down through the ages voices of compassion and wisdom have told us that one of the great commandments of life is that we should help others without any ulterior motive and give without the expectation of getting anything in return. In the end, it’s not how much we give but the love we put into giving. Or as Kahlil Gibran put it: “You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

And thus ends this week of posts dedicated to someone who gave more than she received, but she always gave of herself and that’s why she is honoured here.
