I met a woman the other day who had a van she no longer needed. She was getting any needed repairs and maintenence done on it then giving it away to a woman she'd heard was needed transportation. I asked her if this woman was a relative or friend. She said no. She'd heard about her from a friend of a friend, adding: "I have been blessed in my; life and am now in a position to be able to do this. You know, Pay It Forward."
My heart swelled and I started to cry. How wonderfully beautiful. What a prime example of showing compassion to another human being. How great to live in tune with the loving Spirit who guides us. I admired her tremendously.
In my own life I've been the recepient of another's generous giving and I've given whenever I can. At times I've found myself with the bills paid and a few extra dollars in my pocket and was thankful to be able to give to someone in need. I've also had times when I've been down to no money and very little food when some kind and compassionate soul stepped in to help me over that nasty bump in my journey. Without those unfortunate times that forced me to grow and learn and live smarter, I wouldn't have experienced the joy of Spirit swelling within me those times I am able to give the same gift to someone else. So, my friends, Pay It Forward, whatever you give you will receive so much more in return.
I am blessed.
