Take the Money -- Or Not

I received as much response from the email about prayers for healing Danny the Dog as anything I have ever sent out. All but one person said I should take the $200 Danny's owner sent me.

I was touched by those caring emails. And I understand what they said about accepting gifts in the spirit they were offered, gratitude, not offending the giver, not blocking the flow.

But I just couldn't do it. I returned it with my thanks and suggested he might donate it to an animal shelter or animal related charity.

Danny's owner not only understood the spirit in which I declined, he thanked us for our kindness and said he's be glad to donate $500!!

I thank you for your kindness and sharing your thoughts with me and each other. There's a saying, "The essence of communication is intent." With what generous intent we all communicated!

To Your Health and Happiness -- and Danny's!
