The Ultimate Gift
Opening your heart and providing a shoulder
Smiling through exhaustion
Listening in earnest although time is scarce
Sharing uplifting words
Extending courtesies without hesitation
Complimenting a stranger
Dropping a welcome note at a new neighbor’s door
Leaving a person or place better just because you cared
Appreciating each moment and never taking family, friends — or life for granted
Seeking the best in others
Giving what you can to those who struggle
Earning and extending trust
Remaining silent in the absence of positive thoughts
Revering respect as the cornerstone of love
Improving our world with every gracious gesture
Demonstrating the true spirit of Christmas
The Ultimate Gift…

“Remaining silent in the absence of positive thoughts.” I love this “gift” and hope to give it out all year by his grace. Maybe I’ll carry duct tape in my purse for the more difficult temptations 😉
