Thanks to all who took the time to think about and share ways in which you have been or want to be generous. I loved reading your examples and getting some additional ideas for myself and for our family.

What’s so interesting about being generous and giving, is that it does bless those who are on the receiving end, but the big impact is in my hearts. It truly is more blessed to give than to receive – there is a joy that comes from nowhere else than by giving.

In case you’re wondering how the winner was chosen, I numbered the comments according to the order in which they were made, then used a random number generator on line. RuthAnne, I will be getting your giftcard to you within the week – congrats!
I’ll continue to discuss the final few values from my list within the next week or so – I look forward to continuing the discussion with you!
