Today, on Giving Tuesday, we give thanks. For every volunteer. Every donor. Every broken person who shows up. With a lifetime of hurt, shame, worry, and regret. We give thanks that love heals.
We give ourselves over to love’s gentle way. A way that encourages sharing. A way that inspires giving. A way that lights the path we travel together.
We give ourselves completely to love’s many invitations. To sit down our baggage. And lay down our weapons. And give a piece of ourselves away.
We give ourselves fully to our work. Our families. Our communities. To the tender places that remind us that we are not alone.
We give the love you give to us. And we add it to our own. And we give it to the next woman who is seeking all of the same things we were once seeking. And were lucky enough to find.
