Celebrating the Gift of Giving

Celebrating the Gift of Giving

I believe we are all born to give and that as children, given a healthy home life with loving parents who teach you “there is enough”, the gift of giving can become a daily act. I’m not there, or at least I don’t think I am, which is kind of odd when I consider I get “thank you” from people around the world thanking me for the gift of Nia. Sometimes the thank you comes in unexpected, surprising ways that touch me more deeply. Today was one of those days when at the end of the hour and a half class I taught in Tuscon, Arizona I received a most precious book filled with personal Nia stories. The Nia teachers and students wrote their stories and asked Lisa Walters to creatively put them together in a book for me. I read this book on my way to LA for my friend Bill’s memorial to celebrate his life: that too was a touching and beautiful experience that I will always cherish being a part of.

I leave Tuscon, Arizona with a full heart, reminded how blessed my life is, and how life is something better when we share in the dance of life! Thank you, Tuscon! I look forward to coming again.
