My heart is full.

There are many things that I have learned in my life that have now become absolute truths to me.

One of the things I've learned is that there are GIVERS and there are TAKERS in the world.
I have learned, that while we all do both at certain times in our lives, there are just some people that are either one or the other.

I have recently been the recipient of such a kind giver.

 This sweet person gave to our family without being asked. She gave out of the pure and simple generosity of her heart. The giving of her heart has filled mine to the very brim.

An example of charity has never been so obvious to me.

Although these words do not do justice, I will say them to you in person and also here.

Thank you, kind giver.
May your generosity be returned to you ten fold.

In my last post, I shared with you some quotes from a very special lady, Marjorie Pay Hinckley. I have always found wonderful guidance and comfort in the uplifting words others.

I remember reading a quote many years ago that has always stuck with me.
I would like to share that today with you.

"Give without Remembering, 
Receive without Forgetting." 

Today I want to be a little better at giving and never forget the times that I have received.

Often Heavenly Father sends others to bless our lives. I'm so happy that such a special person came along your path.

Great quote. Is that also from Sis. Hinckley?

I need to be better about giving, too. Also, love the quote. What a world this would be if we all followed that counsel...especially me :)

"Give" said the Little Stream. We learned from Primary. It sounds like you have been blessed by someone who gets that wonderful principle. I am so happy for you. God Bless. Julie
