Gift Giving

image

We all have within us
the capability of being kind,
extending love,
and being of a tender spirit.
We spend so much time
nursing our wounded egos,
feeling entitled, and thinking
more of ourselves than we should,
that we forget others are hurting
as well.
In the season of giving
the best gifts are free; a hug, a smile,
time together, kindness to a stranger, consideration,
respect, empathy, and a helping hand – gifts of the soul.
These gifts do not and should not be seasonal.
We need to make these gifts a way of life.
Each and every day, reflecting on what we have
and offering our best selves to those around us.
