It lies within hearts who have been loved, and hearts who know how to show, not tell, about love. It lies beneath veins in hands that have been used for cooking and cleaning and channeling inner struggles, and then inner temples of zen. It lies within wrinkled eyes and mouths–all due to laughter. Thus, generosity is my great grandmother. We call her ‘Mama,’ with a Latin pronunciation, accent on the 1st ‘a.’

p.s. Yesterday my mom, sister, and I were hanging out with my great grandmother in various shops, helping her run her errands. She constantly offered to buy us things, even though we were only trying to get what she needed. She never fails to do so either, as her generosity is a monstrosity.  That’s why we love her. Here’s to generosity! #killemwithkindnes
