Just a simple gesture of kindness — what possible difference could it make?
Ah, there lies the mystery and the magic! Do we only give because we want an ego boost from knowing we “did good,” or only when we get tangible proof that our gift will be put to “proper” use? The beauty of unconditional kindness is that we may NEVER know, but.. we give anyway.
We give because we are given. We are given the opportunity to become greater. Greater than our own world, greater than our life challenges, greater than ourselves.
We give because we know. We know we can be someone’s lifeline, we can be a channel to love and to hope, we can make a life worthy of living, we can be the second chances they’ve been waiting for. Yes, we CAN make a difference!
