Sharing with Neighbors in Need

When did you learn to share? As adults… most of us are quick to explain to a child the importance of sharing. When we see children on a playground or in a classroom, sharing makes perfect sense! We see them as peers simply being kind to one another. What seems so obvious for our children often becomes more complicated for us as adults. We still share, but we narrow our comfort level with whom we share. Generally, it’s with people we know and trust – people we consider to be our peers. For all others, it changes from sharing to charity. On the surface these words seem very similar yet the feelings that arise on the receiving end of sharing are very different than the feelings associated with receiving charity.

It’s common to think of sharing as a two way street and charity as the “haves” giving to the “have-nots”. At Fresh Harvest, we share knowing everyone has something to offer. A small shift in how we think about giving, or rather sharing, can make a huge difference. Let’s all raise our level of sharing. Let’s be kind to one another. Let’s share like we share with a trusted friend. Let’s share like we teach our children.
