It’s better” to give than receive” especially just now.

I got this today thanks xxx

I sent an old friend who is in a home a small Christmas tree with lights. She is alone and her family abroad, sadly she spends most of her life in her wee room. We speak every day she is such a lovely person that I have known fir years. Typical of her generation (she is over 80 ) and just gets on with her life. She tells me that wee tree had made her so happy she has phoned 3 times reminding me of how special it is to her. Sadly her hearing and eyesight are poor and though she is well cared for I cannot get over to see her due to Covid.

I drop some bits and pieces of every week she is so appreciative. It’s not much but it makes her day.

I like many get great joy from trying to make folks life a bit better.

As someone very wise said “ It’s better to give than receive “ We can all do our bit and know someone we can help. In this uncaring world let’s try to look after those whose life we can make a bit better.

Comments welcome.
