I have learned that I grow in the direct proportion to my willingness to give, to serve without an expectation of getting something in return.  Giving for the sheer JOY of it helps me be more of who I was created to be.  Try living this principle; ask not what others can do for you, ask what you can do for others.  You will be amazed.  ~ Sherry Petro-Surdel from A Voice of Reason
