Dreams

I saw this story on the local news tonight and it just warms my heart. A local young woman was accepted to an acting school in New York. But when her father was laid off she started playing her violin near a busy shopping area to raise money to go. When the local news first reported it someone anonymously donated the remaining balance she needed with the caveat that she donate the money later on so someone else can realize their dream.

It's wonderful to see people's generosity to one another, especially when all we usually see in the media is so depressing. Giving is one of our end goals now that we are out of debt and getting our finances in order. We have been "living like no one else," so later we can "give like no one else." Seeing stories like this are such an inspiration and a reminder that good still exists in this world.
