BIG GIVE


"For it is in giving that we receive" - St. Francis of Assisi

We've just watched part of Oprah's Big Give about the little boy, Drew, who gave away his 5th Birthday Presents to a needy family. The story was told in church, the Minister asked everyone to go home and find something to give and it snowballed, helping so many people.

Yesterday, we cleared out a shed to make way for yet another ride-on mower, a slasher and a trailer. Things we'd stored ten years ago when we moved here are still in boxes, never looked at. I put them to one side to take over to the barn for a Garage Sale. Today I've decided that it will be a FREE Garage Sale, anything left will go to the Op-Shop.

What a lovely idea! I have been putting off having a garage sale because I hate pricing everything. This seems like an excellent solution. All the camaraderie, none of the angst!

One good thing about it is that it will go quickly! And thus, tidying up for me!
