Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Giving And Receiving


--by ado, posted May 12, 2018
A few years ago while working as an engineer we had foreign experts come to  work on construction crews.. One of the workers was really nice and really reminded me of my grandpa. He told me that before he left, he wanted my watch.

I smiled thinking that he was kidding, but just before he left the country I gave him my watch. Another guy  I was  friendly with eyed my other watch before leaving and I was thinking to myself that I wouldl not give him the watch because I already gave my other watch.

But just as he was leaving, I took off my other watch and gave it to him. I was without a watch but when I got home I remembered that my dad had offered me a watch that I told him that I didn't need at the time, so I ended up asking him for it. I think as we give more we end up receiving even more.

As you give, you automatically trigger the flow of abundance. Zigziglar ever said that "what ever you want of this world, you must first give " keep up the flow by repeating your kindness story.
