Warm Things

"Sara -- who was only doing what she unconsciously liked better than anything else,
Nature having made her for a giver -- had not the least idea what she meant to poor Becky,
and how wonderful a benefactor she seemed. If Nature has made you for a giver, your
hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands
are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that -- warm things,
kind things, sweet things -- help and comfort and laughter -- and sometimes gay, kind
laughter is the best help of all."
-- from The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Abby and I are reading The Little Princess together, and these words from chapter six just grabbed me. They are so lovely and so true.
Happy Sunday!
