Leaving a Trail of Gifts

My wife is one of the most generous people I know. We've never had a whole lot to spend on gifts, but somehow she usually finds a way to give them. Over the years God has blessed us with some friends who have been very generous with us. They have invited us to get away to their cabin or their cottage or their farm. I can remember occasions where I've been all packed and ready to go and anxious to leave, and my wife hasn't come out yet. I'll go back inside and I'll say, "Honey, what are you doing?" You know where she is? She's rummaging through her gift box or her gift closet, and she'll say, "Wait a minute, Honey, I'm looking for a gift."
Sure enough she almost always left a gift behind for those friends. She finds something of hers that she can give. I can't tell you how many times she's done that for a dinner host, for a sick friend, for a new mom. She just leaves a gift in so many lives.
I've watched the blessing a person can leave because she's always looking for a gift to give. Why don't you try that as a lifestyle? I think you'll like it, and they'll love it.
