Enough

As previously noted, my Worldwide Moment occurred during a meeting for the annual CROP Hunger Walk, a charity walk-a-thon. This year's theme is "Enough," which in a secular society perhaps may be the most counter-cultural notion ever.

After all that serious stuff, when I got home this skein of lovely laceweight yarn and a stitch marker from Erin was waiting for me. She bought a bunch at a thrift sale and graciously shared her bounty. Thank you, Erin! I love the yarn and I can't help think the happy synchronicity provides a perfect illustration of sharing abundance.

It was a happy ending to a happy day.

I like this concept, instead of throwing bags of rice or cans of food at the hungry, it seems more intelligent--help them to help themselves. I wish all charities were like this and not just bandaids.
