I read the following quote on the wonderful website gratefulness.org. We are reminded that gratitude and generosity go hand in hand. We can’t help but be generous when we are truly grateful, and when we are gifted through the generosity of others, our only response can be gratitude . . . and we then offer generosity to others.
The extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation.
