Cheerful giving

I I was wearing a white necklace in church and one of our very nice old ladies complimented after the service that it was beautiful and she liked it. It was my favorite necklace, I really liked it! But I gave it to her anyway. She was surprised and was very happy and thankful to have it. I was also happy inside, in fact grateful for the opportunity to give for had she not complimented about it, I would have not thought of giving her the necklace. I didn't mind because she is a very special lady, and I feel a bond to her. She always shares her wisdom and she's almost a real mother to me. Everything she said to me meant a lot and just what I needed when I was so down. She helped me without her knowing. There is indeed real happiness in giving and reaching out that the temporary happiness of having material things cannot compare.
