The widow's mite

Today's Gospel is about the poor widow who gave two small coins to the Temple treasure. But Jesus said that she gave more than all the others, because she gave from her neediness.

I thought of Grams, as she is affectionately known. Grams is the mother of two of our sisters in our community. She happens to be visiting Boston right now. She's 94 and sharp as a tack. As she once said, "I thank God that I have all my marbles and I know what I'm doing!" She's knows what she's doing, all right! She's extremely generous and while she lives very frugally herself, over the years she has made many generous donations both to our community and other good causes. God bless Gramas!
