Receiving in Giving

Being of service is such an essential tenet of our faith, yet sometimes we forget what we receive when we give. Today, consider all that you receive as well. 


What if today 
we approached one of our most 
wearying situations– 
one where we have given, 
and keep on giving– 
as a gift? 
Not as task, 
not as a chore, 
but simply as a way 
of being in the world?


Take a few deep breaths and think of the blessings that have come into your life with all you’ve given to others.
