The Best Gifts

Deep down inside we know that the best gifts don't come from catalogs or shopping malls. They don't come in brightly-colored packages or fancy envelopes and they're not sitting under a tree somewhere. The best gifts come from the heart. They come when we look at each other, REALLY look at each other and say, 'You mean a lot to me' or 'I'm so glad you're a part of my life'. A gift like that will never go out of style or be forgotten or be returned for a different size. A gift like that can change the world. - Ron Atchison

  3. What a good wise words. Love of neighbor is a very beautiful gift. Even a simple gift it will be something very memorable and valuable, if we give it with love. However, the greatest gift is an affection. I strongly agree with the phrase "A gift like that can change the world"

    Have a nice day all. Let us share the gift with others :)
