Soaking a Sponge in Honey

If you soak a sponge in honey, you squeeze it and honey comes out. If you soak a sponge in vinegar, you squeeze it and vinegar comes out.

A student sent me a message letting me know that our school food pantry was working with Miami Rescue Mission collecting women’s sport’s wear along with food. The message sat in my mailbox for a week before I realized I could multiply my effort by sharing it with you. Last week I put out a call for donations for food and women’s sports wear and my front port became a little collection site.

This afternoon I dropped off the donations. As I walked into my empty and quiet campus, I reflected on the opportunity to share and how good it feels when we do.

Gratitude is the sweetest of honey. My sponge is soaked. I hope yours is too.
