Forward exchange

People take advantage

Of our kindness

And generosity

Yet, we continue to give

And let go of our attachment

Remaining grateful

For having had the opportunity

To serve

And true and unless costly, or degrading, altruism is its own reward. - slc

We still believe

It sure has been costly. Broke us down to nothing. But we have to do what we have to do. Even if we find ourselves gritting our teeth for some of it.

The universe provides, our bellies are still full, we remain grateful.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you

We keep trying. Sometimes, we have found we have had to hold back. "No good deed goes unpunished." 


Still grateful!
