151. Better to give than to receive, they say. But this walking wounded, on the receiving end of so much giving, has come to a clearer appreciation of the kindness and generosity, not only of family and friends, but also of strangers. Someone told me that in the Tamil language the word for 'beggar' has a positive connotation in that the beggar is a rich source of blessing for his or her benefactor. May this wounded one be a source of blessing for the strangers, the professionals (ambos, nurses, doctors, physios), family and friends who have helped me, and continue to help me, deal with my current situation.
