Fav Quote Friday: Emerson On Giving Without The Getting

"Unselfish acts are the real miracles
out of which
all the reported miracles grow." 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we can give freely,
with truly no expectation of
getting anything in return,
it is then we give from the soul.
Try it sometime...it will open you heart and bring you joy.
