Between the power outage and preparing to speak at last week’s 100th year anniversary/52nd convention for the Girl Scouts, the introduction for Powerful Words’ Generosity Month is finally here! Let’s encourage our children to give of their treasures, talents, time as well as their thanks to help and to acknowledge help of others.

“The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own.” –Lao Tzu
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.” –Mother Teresa
“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” –Albert Pine
