The Giving Season

0

“I was recently the recipient of an incredible act of anonymous kindness. It came from out of nowhere, at exactly the right time. The magnitude of the gift moved me to tears, and I was so grateful and profoundly moved by the generosity of my unknown benefactor. But I was also sure there had been a mistake. In the midst of this beautiful act, I am ashamed to admit that I was momentarily overcome by feelings of unworthiness. I simply couldn’t believe I was deserving of such radical kindness.” When an act of anonymous generosity spurs writer Jennifer Merlich to participate in 40 Days of Giving, she begins to dance that blurry line between giver and receiver, and discover profound insights.
