    This really hit home for me. I feel joy when I give, but there was one recent exception, and I realize now why it felt so wrong. I gave a gift of two things that were precious to me.I was expecting a response and judging the person for failing to give. When I examine why I gave, I realized I gave in order to show I was going to treat this young woman better than I had been treated by someone in the same position I am now. I would be generous and understanding and - judgey? Yep, apparently that too. This was a great read. I will check out Dorothy Day. Thank you. ♥.
