“Giving” fills our hearts immensely

By My First Spanish

Giving fills our hearts immensely!

It’s that time of the year again when we all stop for a moment and think about the things we are grateful for, our families, our friends, jobs, our food, our home and all the little things that make us happy and be joyful. But then, we also want to make others happy because this is what fills our hearts. And what a better way to accomplish this but to “give”. Give time, goods, money or just a simple card with a thought of gratitude.

We can “give time”, precious time that can mean so much to others. Spend a few minutes with your elderly listening to their stories. They will be so grateful! Spend some time at a children’s hospital or an orphanage and read aloud to them. Go for a special walk with your little ones and enjoy a conversation full of laughs and giggles.

We can “give goods”. Clothing, cookies, books, anything that comes to your mind that can help in some way other people.

Set a family tradition of collecting money in jar for donating it to a cause you believe in, to a charity, to an orphanage, to an old people house or to an ONG.

There are many more ways of “giving” but remember that the most important one is to “give love” and you can demonstrate it with a simple card of gratitude, a big hug, a kiss or with the magical words “I love you”.
