The half pomegranate story spoke to me. It reminded me of the bible story where the woman gave two coins and her offering was acknowledged as the greater gift. I work with a homeless population, impoverished, addiction and challenged with mental health issues. My youngest son has schizophrenia were it not for my ability to supplement his meagre disability pension and the continuing connection of family and friends, he would be amongst this homeless population. I have no trouble seeing my friends of the street as my brothers, sisters, children. Their generosity at times astounds me even if it is in the sharing of
Half a cigarette.
