I have observed and experienced that the joy of giving is manifold more than the joy of receiving.The happiness and satisfaction one receives after giving is irreplaceable as it evokes genuine human feelings.Today we are too busy to spare time to reach out our relatives,friends and the needy.
One need not be rich to be the part of this noble celebrations.Have a large heart filled with love and care.What can we give?It is not just money or materials.We can gift time,skills and resourcesThere is a long list that we can offer.
A broad and inspiring smile,
Being together to assure moral support.
A visit to an orphanage or old age home,
Taking precautions not to hurt,
the sentiments of our friends and fellow beings!
A word of appreciation for the good work,
A small gift of a fresh and fragrant flower,
A sincere and honest attitude in connections,
A tight and loving hug,
A friendly call,mail or sms,
The short love notes of
''How are you' and ''I miss you''.
Giving time to go for a stroll,
With whom the sunset will be more beautiful.........
Uttering the most inspiring words,
Into the ears of the depressed.........
Lending a helping hand to the parents,
Using the magical words,
Thank You and Please...............
Tolerating different kinds of people,
And spreading communal harmony!
Feeding the homeless and the hungry.
The birds and the animals...
Chanting a prayer for the sick,
And sending a handwritten letter,
To the one who waits for it....
Engage someone in a worthwhile conversation,
Just holding the hands that need the warmth;
Giving the presence and comfort,
To the ones who cry their heart out......
Stop grumbling and live life to the fullest,
Helping the blind to cross the road,
Reading out the good books to the people around,
Introducing the illeterate to the world of letters,
Buying crayons and sketchpens with colourbooks.
Just a kind gesture of asking,
''Hello,how are you?''
[Between,I do take care to do most of these actions.....]:)
And just to remember-before pointing one finger to others,the other four fingers are pointing towards us!
So,be humble and say God,thank you so much........
For all teh blessings you've gifted to us!
The long list of our actions that give us the joy never ends here...................
''Happiness is not something you carry in your hands.
It is something you carry in your heart.
Do something that can remove the frustration of your friend,
Let someone express himself/herself;
Wishing you a beautiful night that leaves a broad smile on your and my face.........:)
