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."
At a time when all one hears is how the world is crumbling in all aspects and doom seems to be looming large, this perspective is so refreshing. It brings hope instead of despair. Thank you for sharing.
