The Gift of Self

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” -Kahlil Gibran

Any rich person can give money.  And yes, this helps feed people and find cures for diseases.  But what is a million to someone with more than they or their descendants can ever spend?

The five minutes of time from a busy person to assist another person?

The homemade meal for the new parent that is exhausted?

The evening of watching your friend’s kids so they get a moment of respite?

Writing a poem or song for your crush.

That call to a friend going through a rough patch, just to say “hey, I am here for you.”

There I no price tag on these but they are all priceless.
