Decisions in Giving
I quote with permission from a letter he sent to his grandchildren my friend, Charlie "Tremendous" Jones:
On giving: "Never give to get, give because you have received. Giving is like a muscle. To be strong, you have to exercise it, and to grow as a person, giving is the exercise. You can't really enjoy anything without sharing it. This includes your faith, love, talents and money. Someday, you'll discover we never really give, we're only returning and sharing a small portion of what we've received."
On decisions: "The more decisions you make, the more tremendous your life will be. Don't wait for the right time, do something now, today. Don't worry about big decisions, make many little ones and the big ones will seem little. Your job is not to make a right decision as much as to make one and invest your life making it right.
"You only have two big decisions in LIFE. Your marriage and your work.
"Your marriage: Someday, you'll meet someone to love and share their life with you. Love between a man and woman is second only to the love of God, but there is one big difference. God's love never changes, while our love is very changeable. So, please, remember commitment in your marriage is more important than love. Commitment will save your marriage when your love dies, or until it lives again.
If we follow Charlie's advice, we'll all have something to smile about.
