When you genuinely help someone, you feel better about yourself.
Generosity of spirit actually pays pretty good dividends.
Not so many words, but much thought about this topic, of late.
PS For those of you who have been asking … Poor Camilla died yesterday. She went peacefully, with no distress. She had a whole extra month of life, out scratching in the dirt, eating worms, enjoying the spring sunshine. Our yard seems quiet without her friendly chicken face. She was such a funny bird – if I called her, she would race to me, as fast as her fat, poultry waddle would allow her to come. I will miss her.
