Be a Gift

     Have you ever had a really crummy day and someone smiled at you or said something pleasant and it completely changed your day?  That was a gift.

     During this stressful time of year, take the challenge to be a gift to someone else.  It doesn't have to cost a thing -- it could be a smile, a kind word, a compliment, or even allowing someone else in front of you in the check-out line.  It could be baking some cookies for a lonely neighbor or smiling through Uncle Jack's re-telling of the same old stories.  It could be picking up some trash or saying a prayer.  It could be keeping a kind thought and a heart of compassion during stressful times. 

     Our world needs a gift.  That gift is you.
