Unexpected Gifts

Yesterday was a day of giving and receiving.  I gave my neighbor some leftover roofing for her chicken coop, and then we picked her green beans. I came home with a basketful.

In the afternoon, i went to visit a Master Gardener friend who had gone to a Sun Dance in Pocatello last month. I took her a copy of my book, Following the Nez Perce Trail. She gave me an angelwing begonia.

These unexpected gifts felt quite sweet and are also very useful.

Generosity is the first of the 10 qualities of the awakened heart, qualities that we practice, practice, practice in order to perfect.

What happened yesterday was perfect :)
