Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I have tried to be generous to people, but sometimes they can take advantage of your generosity. Such has been the case for my wife and I, over the last two years. But I remain optimistic that my desire to show generosity to others has not dissipated. Have a blessed day today and always.
