There is nothing more nobler than the act of sharing. Sharing is a basic act of letting the other person know you care. Young children learn about sharing by watching the adults around them. Actions certainly speak louder than words. Growing up with two wonderful sisters made it easier for me to learn the value of sharing. What I learned from them made me into the adult I am today.
I am very thankful my older sisters taught me this important lesson. It brings great joy to my heart because I have been able to pass on that important value to my three children. They learned early on to share everything.
I think sharing goes beyond material things. My sisters and friends helped me shoulder the pain of my son’s illness. They shared my pain by praying for me. Now, they are sharing the joy of my son getting well again. Life is so fragile, but having people around you to share joy makes life worth living.
