The Generosity of Others – #JusJoJan

The posts about generosity have been moving this morning. As I started to write my post, the post about Mary Smith’s upcoming memorial service came through. It took my breath away. Mary was such a kind and generous blogger and seeing another post come from her account made me miss her even more.

I have been the recipient of such generosity in my life. There is a humility necessary to step back and admit you have needs you cannot meet and to accept the generosity of others. I have known what it is like to be poor and struggling. Sadje’s poem this morning speaks of generosity – the giving and receiving – so elegantly. You can read it here.

I am humbled by the generosity shown me throughout my life. I have often received gifts from others through a veil of tears, fearing judgement when none was there. There is much to be learned about life and humanity through simple acts of generosity.
