"Giving is a privilege. It is a privilege for both the giver and the
receiver. Both are honored and ennobled by the action of giving. Giving is
a rare and precious energy resource––*the energy of connecting. *When
giving and receiving take place, it seems to bond the giver and the
receiver together in a state of delight and grace." Leslie Temple-Thurston
