“If you have much, give of your wealth; if you have little, give of your heart.” – Unattributed.
Tonight Kubota and I, along with our 2.0s had the great honor of spending some time with those in need at the Daily Planet. We brought very little, yet received a whole lot. A great meal was shared, and great conversations were had. We could not be more proud of our 2.0s. They showed tremendous service, understanding and compassion for only being 8 and 6 years old.
YHC was incredibly surprised by the smiles and happiness of these folks, despite their having fallen on hard and uncertain times. On the ride home, Shark bait and I were discussing the lessons of the evening, and Shark bait simply stated that they were all so happy. What a powerful and true observation. We worry far too much about the material things we don’t have. Sharing with these folks tonight was a real reminder of just how lucky we all are, and more importantly, how grateful we all should be.
During my time with F3, I’ve heard a lot about Breaking Bread. Not until tonight did I realize just how powerful of an experience it truly is. Sign up and go if you haven’t. What little you bring will mean the world to those people, yet somehow you will walk away with the biggest gift – a much needed a timely reminder of just how truly blessed you are.
