YAY!! +1!
It's been a bit challenging today. Jeremy is in the dumps, no job offers are coming his way, and he's just down. I talked to him until way too late. Of course, no one has said no to him, either, just...nothing.

So I slept late and then the street crew arrived to make a mess, which I hollered at them until they cleaned up. Walking the dog, eating, and now at 3p finally some internet time!

Yes, and thank you ever so much!
I am giving it to my girlfriend (she is really into Jewish culture) but maybe she'd be willing to send it on when she is done. :) I'm glad you're interested! it was a great book, read it in three days!
I'll keep you posted, Stephanie! So far, you're the only response!


I'll need your address so I can mail it to you!
Hello there Stephanie! Thank you so much for the lovely message. It boosted my spirits no end to read your comments. Let me add my blessings to those bestowed by those people you shared your money with. I make no judgments on other people and if/how they choose to help out those less fortunate. I just share what has worked for me. Once I took the worrying about what they might do with the money and focused on the act of sharing, it just took away so much angst and emotional effort.

I can truly say, I have been rewarded far more in return than the little amounts of money I hand out. I have made some interesting friends, and my regulars sometimes know me better than my colleagues and family. I was going through a rough patch about five years ago. Several of my 'regulars' picked up on it and expressed their concern. One even offered to pray for me. Imagine that -- I who have so much being prayed for by those who have so little. What a gift and blessing!

I also had a lovely experience at the train station in Boston recently. A man to whom I had given money regularly in the past disappeared after a while. After about a year, he approached me in the train station. He shared that he was on his feet, working and with a place to live. I was so thrilled for him! Even more of a surprise, he handed me $20. I begged him to keep it, but he said that he had run to the bank machine, hoping to buy me some flowers. Unfortunately, the flower stand had already closed. He wanted me to use the money to buy myself some flowers the next day when I came into work. It meant a lot to him to be able to give me something. It taught me about being gracious in receiving as well as giving. What a joyful day that was.

I count your story among those things which gives me so much happiness. Thank you! Thank you! Marianne
