    I agree 100%, You never know what the future holds for you, but to give something to someone, even a stranger, is it's own reward.

    The saying "what goes around comes around" is true but it doesn't always come from where it's given. My joy comes from the giving but I've always been that way, even as a child. (Many many moons ago)[/quote]

    That's the best feeling in the world when we give our love to someone to wrap themselves in! Can't believe how addictive it is!

    Well said. When you give from your heart expect nothing in return, the treasure is always greater.

    Yes, you did God's work and reached out to someone in need. It must have meant a lot to him. Just think when he wraps himself up in it, you will be thought of fondly. This is the unexpected gift! Great job!
