Helping folks with practical tips to manage themselves better

Weekend Story-Generosity


In a small town, a young boy overheard his mother asking their neighbor for some salt. The boy knew that there was enough salt in the house.

“Mom, we have salt at home. Why, then, are you asking our neighbor for some?” he asked his mother.

Smiling, the boy’s mother responded gently, “Our neighbors are struggling financially, and sometimes, they ask us for help. So I thought i’d ask them for something small that would not burden them but at the same time make them feel like we need them too. This way, it will be easier for them to ask us for anything they need from us, without feeling uncomfortable.”
