Joy in giving


The mulberry tree in the newly mulched garden

  From My Garden

When we give away a flower

Its fragrance stays behind

Like a special little “thank you”

For doing something kind….

When we give away a word

To cheer someone’s distress

The glow of it remains with us

To bring us happiness…

When we give away a loving smile

To lighten someone’s heart

Our own is always lightened

By the love that we impart….

In fact, the sweetest things of all

  That bring us joy each day

 Are not the ones we try to keep

 But those we give away.
