My Mother would teach me through her faith to always give what I had an abundance of, not what I had lacking. If I had given away all my toys and clothes that were not abundant then I would have made myself no better than the children I wanted to help, but when we had more than we needed we gave it away. This was a very important lesson and instilled many values in my life.
I give what it is in my heart to give, what I have an abundance of, and sometimes those things are not material, sometimes they are stories…. and moments are priceless.
