As the holidays approach, you have so much to give. Your gift, however, doesn't have to be purchased in a store or wrapped with an elaborate bow. It doesn't have to be the latest fad or break your piggy bank.
Your gift is invaluable when it is your caring heart.
This season, what if you made it a practice for your gift to be that of kindness? How badly our world needs kindness! Every day, we encounter people who are hurting, who are injured by the circumstances of life, whose way is rough and who could use some compassion.
Open your heart to others. Offer a word of encouragement. Dry a tear.
This holiday season, give love. Give compassion. Give kindness. Give patience. Give respect. Give your undivided self.
You don't have to buy a present. Instead, be present.
Today, this week, this holiday season: Be a gift to others by being kind and spreading compassion.
