Give Lavishly! Live Abundantly!
– Helen Steiner Rice
The more you give, the more you get,
The more you laugh, the less you fret.
The more you do unselfishly,
The more you live abundantly –
The more of everything you share,
The more you always have to spare.
The more you love, the more you’ll find
That life is good and friends are kind,
For only what we give away
Enriches us from day to day.
Bernie and his mates were out at the local pub for a drink.
They were discussing Christmas and exchanging their individual experiences of the festive occasion.
Then the conversation moved along to Christmas gifts and what they are giving to their nearest and dearest. Soon it was Bernie’s turn.
“What did you get for Christmas, Bernie?”
“I bought myself one of those I-phones” he replied. “They’re brilliant. You can do internet and movies and photographs and just about anything.”
“Then for my daughter I bought an I-pad. They’re better than books you know”.
“…..and I got my son an I-pod for his music.”
“What did you get for your wife then Bernie? asked his best mate. “Something special?”
“Well, I got her one of those Irons.”
