G is for Generous
Blake has one of the most generous souls I have ever known. He gives and gives and rarely takes. He is a great listener, as well and I am sure that has something to do with his generosity of spirit. He had a blanket he brought home from two years of church service in Spain. He loved the blanket and slept with it all the time. He gave it to his brother, Jordan, just because he liked it. He visited a family who joined our church every week just to check in on them. He helped bring them supplies when their water went out. Invited them to dinner and loved them like they were family. He would do computer work for people for free and not complain once. He didn't charge them because they were elderly or a single mom. If they insisted repeatedly on paying, he would charge them a nominal fee. He lets me sleep in on some Saturdays. Is there anything more generous than that? He gives surprise Christmas gifts to people. He encourages us all to be generous with our time, money and talents. He has a heart of gold and that is one of my favorite things about him.
