Share What You Have

“But give that which is within as charity, and then all things are clean for you.” Luke 11:41

This photo makes me so happy! After my surrogacy, I pumped for the little guy while he was in the hospital. Miraculously, he was able to go home after only five days in the NICU. Yay! But, by then my good milk had come in. I foresaw that happening and had planned to donate the breastmilk I would pump over the next few weeks or months.

Then, while chatting with my little sister, I realized she needed my milk for her 6-month-old son. She was breastfeeding and pumping for him, and having a hard time keeping up with the demand. She had found a donor to help her, but we didn’t know how much longer the donor would be available. And I had this gift of liquid gold to share. How amazing to be able to help feed your nephew!

I don’t have millions of dollars to give to charity. I don’t have the resources to build schools or hospitals for areas in need. I don’t have the power to stop war. But, I am learning that sharing what you can, what you have, can make a difference to someone. It can be your time, your skills, your unneeded clothing … or even some Mommy’s milk. 🙂

Love (and give) more,

Dana
