Not only are they being generous, but they are giving up something that they themselves would treasure.
I saw this on Pinterest the other day.
It reminded me of a story told by my aunt Winkie (whom I’ve written about before). Winkie was about 14 years younger than my father. When she was a young schoolgirl, he used save her an apple from his packed lunch. At the end of each day, she would meet him as he walked home, and he would hand her the apple.
Winkie grew to be one of those people who, like K.B., had kindness and generosity ingrained in her. That spirit comes from somewhere, from someone. Our mission is to nurture it in ourselves and others.
