Service and Giving - By: Maria Sapio Realtor® Carlisle, PA.

"The man will be most successful who confers the greatest service on the world."

"Giving is the secret to a healthy life. Not necessarily money, but whatever a person has to give of encouragement, sympathy, and understanding."

- John D. Rockefeller


Today is Memorial Day - and as I ponder the concept of 'giving' - I pause to consider the ultimate sacrifice of those that have given all for the cause of protecting the life, the liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of others.

The words 'service' and 'giving' have many connotations and can be applied to many areas of life and today as I remember those that have given and served our country, I also dig deep within to ask myself how I may continue to spark my inner desire to serve and give to those around me.

Good morning, Maria. When I find myself champing at the bit, wishing I could make a bigger difference in the world, I remember Helen Keller's quote, "I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble." You've sparked my blog post idea for today--so you've already found one way to be of service

Maria,

Beautiful post.  I think that we all reach a point, where giving is second nature, when we appreciate our blessings!  A

Hi Maria- often the little things we do can have a profound impact on others. We may not realize it but they do. Just holding the door open for people may not seem much but in doing so we have shown another person a kindness that may have been needing.
