Gifts That Remain
The toy truck may soon be broken and the doll forgotten. Even roses will fade. But certain gifts remain. Given regularly, they brighten the home and add a gracious touch to a family living. Here are several ready to unwrap and spread their joy around:
Time: A precious thing, your very own. To take time for each other, to give time, is simply to give yourself. There is no substitute.
Smiles: So inexpensive, yet how they warm the heart. They melt the tiny icicles of doubt and fear and aloneness. The ready smile wraps love around the spirit and seals it snugly. Give smiles whenever and wherever.
Appreciation: A quick thank you, a kind word-both give assurance of being noticed and wanted. Don’t let this gift stay locked up. Bring it out often.
Understanding: A gentle, tender gift. Not all of us have it to give in great measure. But wonder of wonders, to give the little you have uncovers a lot.
