giving, receiving

3 Nov

yesterday, Priscilla I sat with Marilyn a lovely white haired and thin lady ( 86 ) as she opened up her outdoor puzzle table. Her puzzle was images of birds of all colours, magenta to corn flower blue. She and her fellow puzzle companions love bright colours. ( easier to see )

Priscilla and I had just brought a ‘ World of Jane Austen ‘ puzzle 🧩 to give as a gift to them.

Jane

As we gave her the puzzle I asked her to keep our names anonymous as I always believe in giving without letting ( as much as possible) the receiver know who sent the gift. Why?

To keep my motives as pure as possible.

Marilyn said ‘oh no! You have to leave us the ability to say “thank you.”

Moved, I said, please let them know.
