On Being Fed

"To have loaves is a luxury, 
but to then have leftovers, 

is a blessing." 

-R. Burnett Baker 

I wrote this as a comment on Facebook to one of my favorite poet's post yesterday.  I don't know what Arian was referring to through his words but that doesn't matter:  His post holds a universal truth about kindness.  I hope he won't mind my reposting his words here:  

"And so we give away some part of ourselves, to find that part returned to us tenfold, in ways we could never have predicted and cannot rationally stand. Loaves and leftovers. In kindness, miracles do happen."
