  •  I had a great lesson in generosity of spirit (4+ / 0-)

    many years ago, as an undergrad student. A teaching assistant for one of my classes came to class one fall day, weather chilly, and didn't have his coat. Someone had stolen it at the library the night before. When asked what he thought about that, he said, "I'll just have to figure that whoever stole it needed it more than I did."

      that my (IA) mom taught us long ago.  You can't sit around steaming over something that is lost or stolen.  You just hope it went where it was needed more.
