We drove from Dayton to Bloomington today, getting into Bloomington about 3p.
We were lucky enough to have been informed of the tanker truck that overturned and caught on fire on I-54 by a fellow motorist at a rest stop just east of the accident. We were able to jump off the interstate and use side roads for the remaining 20 miles or so. After unpacking the van, we relaxed for a bit before heading to Mass at 4p.
I thought the readings for this week were good in that they expanded on one of the things that I try and practice (and recommend to anyone else to practice as well). In short...
The more you give, the more you get.
You might not think it works, but it does. If you don't believe me, just try it. I'm not talking about giving Christmas or birthday presents, but giving yourself to others via your deeds. You'll be surprised at how much happiness you get in return. And once you're happy, there's really nothing else you need.
