“A friend is a gift you give yourself”— Robert Louis Steveenson
“A gift is sometimes so special that it’s treasured for lifetime.
Gifts are exchanged on special days or on no occasion at all. Just given away and received with love.
Remember O. Henry’s story The Gift of the Magi? Very special gifts were there.
Write about a gift you gave or received or wanted to give to someone or a gift you gave yourself.
You might also write about your likes or dislikes about giving or receiving a gift.
And what about gift of words or a gifted person? Yes, give them space too if you wish.”
Some have a gift of gab,
they can feel when you are sad.
A lucky few are talented musicians.
To paint, to sing, to act on stage
are gifts if you leave out ego.
A special gift is a donor’s, saving
lives of people they do not know.
