Sometimes gifts don’t come wrapped up in fancy paper with silk ribbons.
Sometimes they don’t look like gifts at all…at least not in the beginning.
Sometimes they’re just everyday moments that turn into gifts.
Sometimes they’re actions, like a friendly smile, a hug, or pat on the back.
Sometimes they’re words, like “I love you,” “You’re special” or “It will be okay.”
Sometimes we give them to someone else who needs them.
Sometimes they’re given to us when we need them.

I wrote this because lately I’ve been given some gifts I didn’t expect. They weren’t what I asked for, but just what I needed.
They didn’t come wrapped up in the fancy paper and silk ribbons. They were just everyday moments that happened in my life.
They were the kind word I gave to someone who needed it or the laugh someone gave me when I needed it. In both cases, I got gifts!
I could have easily not noticed them as the gifts they were, but the Universe was sneaky and whispered in my ear reminding me.
It’s good to pay attention to the every day gifts in life. Sometimes, they are the most precious gifts of all:~)
What about YOU?
