Americans can be a generous people. Many of them give of their time, talent, and treasure all year long.
December appears to be a time to focus on gifts and giving and helping those with less materials goods. And our mailboxes are full of more giving “opportunities” than one person could possibly keep straight.
Giving is a good thing. A generous spirit is always appreciated.
Sometimes we need to learn to recognize it. The neighbor or friend who patiently listens to our complaints is giving a gift of time. A person picking up a little trash as they walk along the street contributes to the beauty of the landscape. A kind word. A smile.
Consider the character below.
A tough exterior and toothy smile over a generous heart.
