Word for Today
“Present. It is the gift giving season. But there are gifts that are not material things. What are the gifts you would give to the world at large? We all have gifts we have been given, skills and abilities that make us uniquely who we are. What are your gifts and how do you share them? Being able to express ourselves is a gift to be cherished and nurtured. How do you do that? We can often see the gifts that others are and have. Do you tell them that? Do you tell how grateful you are for their presence in your life?”

favorite foods, music, films,
and idiosyncrasies. Most times,
I incorporate humor. My reward
is knowing I have brought a smile,
elicited a chuckle, or touched someone.
Each of my recipients has special
qualities. It is good to remind them.
