"The Giver is bigger than the Receiver. If you want to be large, larger than life, learn to Give.

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything.
The importance of giving, blessing others can never be over emphasized  because there's always joy in giving. 

Learn to make someone happy by acts of giving."

- Katharine Hepburn

Mrs. Jeppson's Corner


A little girl was holding two apples; her mother asked for one. The girl quickly bit one apple, and then, bit the other. Her mother held back her disappointment. Then the girl handed one to her saying, "Here, this is the sweeter one."
