Make Your Life Into a Giving, by Jaggi Vasudeva

 Your story of your grandmother was amazing! My grandmother too lived till a 100 or more (she had no idea how old she was) and spent every morning feeding pigeons before doing anything else. 

The story of the brothers was beautiful too but all that I have seen, sadly, in my experience, is one child coveting the other's wealth. Why can't we ever be satisfied with what we have!

Giving should be a way of being. I love the line from the movie, Hello Dolly, in which Barbara Streisand says "Money, pardon the expression, is like manure. It's not worth a thing unless it's spread around, encouraging young things to grow."

 Beautiful! As a mother of two teenagers who struggles everyday with wondering if I am being the best mother I can be, this was particularly useful. Thanks.

 What a coincidence! I read this and received a book I had ordered called " The Ragged Edge of Silence" by John Francis. I guess the Universe is really trying to tell me something :)
