    What a moving and inspiring story. It is true that when we do things that on the surface seem like they are to benefit others, they typically bring so much more to ourselves.

      Indeed. Life has been less predictable since I decided to go out of my way to be open and giving to people I wouldn’t usually encounter in ‘normal’ life. Sometimes it is a matter of working hard to find light under the jagged edges of someone’s pain, but I love much more the times when I’m humbled and surprised by something lovely where I didn’t expect to find it.
