Learning to share

A short thought in the midst of a full few days.

Tonight I’m in Washington DC where I’ve been joining friends from various places for a gathering that in many ways celebrates friendships and invites people to be generous in relationship.

I used to be tight fisted with my friends. They were mine! MY friends.

But in recent years I’ve come to know that one of my favorite things to do is give my friends away. It’s powerful to share friends with each other and watch as others form relationships.

I’ve found the reward of being generous with my friends, by sharing them with others is quite the mutual blessing.
