“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.”
― Brian Tracy

Sharing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m an extreme pack-rat, hoarder, and craft-a-holic, but if I have the opportunity to share my vises with others, I always do.

One thing I enjoy doing is sharing little toys, books, or of course, my brownies and cupcakes with friends and strangers. While I was going through a closet the other day, I came across a bag of tiny Matchbox cars. I think some were from when my boys were little, or I bought them at a garage sale. I often pop a few trinkets or lollipops in my purse, so when I come across a crying or fussy child, I ask the parent if the child could have the diversion. Other times, I see an adorable child that could use a smile.

Today, I saw the cutest curly-headed boy at the bakery, so I reached in my purse for a shiny Matchbox car to share. The little guy was rather shy, but his mom handed it to him and she recited the mother’s mantra,”Now, what do you say?” The tiny voice mumbled, “Thank you.”

His eyes lit up as he nibbled on his cupcake and held the car tightly. That’s what sharing is all about. Share with friends, family, and neighbors, but don’t forget…random acts of kindness are especially rewarding.
