Sharing is Caring


To show you care for someone is to lend a helping hand
A need to be concerned for every woman, child and man
Share whatever you can to help someone in need
Then you will be happier and a better person indeed

When you share with others you unselfishly give of yourself
Then love is given freely instead of sitting on a shelf
Hands that are always clenched nothing can ever get out
Ones that are open and gives is what love is all about

Sharing is caring when given from the heart with pleasure
The good returns are many and the rewards are without measure
Goods given freely brings a smile to the needy person
Holding back when you can give will only continue to worsen

    A great message which I believe supercedes all others! When we share our time, potential and wealth without anticipating anything in return, we get back in great measure from sources unknown, if nothing else, at least self satisfaction! ! A very transparent write! ! (Report) Reply

    the rewards are not just in the receiving, but also in the giving, this is what makes this life worth living (Report) Reply

    Excellent advise Patricia, after all it is not what we receive but what we give from the heart that defines us. (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
