Reflections

IMG_0586

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the heart – love, kindness, joy, understanding, sympathy, tolerance, forgiveness.

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the mind – ideas, dreams, purposes, ideals, principles, plans, inventions, projects, poetry.

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of words – encouragement, inspiration, guidance.

Emerson said it well – “Rings and jewels are not gifts, but apologies for gifts.  The only true gift is a portion of thyself.”

Wilfred A Peterson
