Time, is probably the greatest gift we can give one another.
A fruit bearing tree, however, is a solid contender for second place.
Mindfulness and meditation teaches us to recognize the wonderful things in our life every day, and to be grateful for them. I am aware of being particularly fortunate as the recipient of generosity lately.
Oh, and the gift of planting a tree with a child! Both literally and figuratively, there are probably fewer things more noble for us adults to do.
Someone I look up to in many ways thought of me when the cherry tree he and his wife purchased proved to be a poor fit for the location they had in mind. The string attached was that he had to help plant it.
What a guy.
This sort of thing has me, quite literally, seeking ways to be kind and generous to other people.
It works. It’s contagious.
Catch that bug.
