On compassion and giving
I have been much more conscious about connecting to people lately.
We are all connected to each other.
If we only pay attention and listen to the whispers, we can hear the secrets of life.
The other morning, I thought of a friend on the way to school.
I have realised that when I am thinking of someone, it is for a reason.
I saw her at school and asked her if she would like to go for a coffee.
It turned out that she had been having an exceptionally bad day.
She said that having a coffee with the friend was exactly what she needed.
My trust in my intuition was spot on.
The coffee morning also filled me up.
And she was so grateful to have some TLC.
She had a bad cold too.
I went home and made a healing herbal broth, which I found here.
(It is a really good article, which has transformed my approach to our diet at home, I really recommend you have a read.)
We were having it for dinner that night.
So I made double.
No extra effort.
And I put it into a little jar with a little label.
I printed out the recipe and put them into a pretty bag.
Five extra minutes of my time.
She was so grateful.
She said it was one of the nicest things that anyone had ever done for her.
And it really filled me up too.
This afternoon, Sohail took two cardboard boxes and stuck them together.
He cut a hole in them.
And put the cat's bed inside.
It has been cold.
And our poor kitty sleeps outside because he is too scared of Xavier.
A little extra warmth for the cat.
Decorated with love by Annie and Xavier.
It goes a long way.
Like John Mayer says: "I believe that my life's gonna see the love I give, returned to me."
Do some giving today.
It will come back to you one hundred times over.
Blessings to you.
