46 THE GIFT
Please scroll down for description and statement
A small girl offers her cookie to a small boy. Her mother looks on indulgently, holding her securely by a child-minder.
On a swing in the air above them is another girl; she has lost her shoes.
The Universe provides us with gifts of all kinds—material, mental, and spiritual. If we share these gifts with others, they have more meaning for us. And it seems the more we share, the more we have to share. This, of course, requires that we live our lives with some discipline. A life of self-indulgence leads, in the end, to loss.
