Drove our exchange student across town so she could donate over 100 children’s books to the Children’s Book Bank. On her own, she put together a book drive for students at her high school. It was a very cool project.
For every act of giving, there is an act of receiving.
Whenever we receive something, it is a giving act to receive it graciously. Receiving graciously adds to the value of the gift and gives back to the giver. Feign humbleness or gratitude diminish the gift. The giver will not be fooled by false flattery.
How can you do this? A simple ‘Thank you’ said with honest appreciation is all it takes.
Csilla Moffat has a nice post here.
It’s yet another small way to show kindness and give something back.
