Gift

"Simple Gifts" -- the first thing that comes to mind.

Gifts are wonderful in all shapes and sizes. Simple gifts are the best. The small tokens of remembrance. The realization that each day -- each moment -- is a gift to be treasured. The air I breathe. The food I eat. The clothes I wear. The friends who know me and love me in spite of me.

A song well sung.

A sunset.

A cool breeze.

A glass of iced tea.

Kindness from a friend.

A moment of calm.

All are gifts to be appreciated. To be noted and remembered. Because when all is said and done those are the gifts with true meaning. The gifts that bring us closer to each other.

"Look Doris, someday you're going to find that your way of facing this realistic world just doesn't work. And when you do, don't overlook those lovely intangibles. You'll discover those are the only things that are worthwhile." -- Fred Gailey, "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947)
