The Perfect Gift

The perfect gift cannot be bought at the shopping mall or the discount warehouse. It is found in your heart.

The best gift you can give is yourself.
Your time.
Your attention.
Your companionship.
Your patience.
Your thoughtfulness.
Your compassion.
Your understanding.
Your encouragement.
Your guidance.
Your love.

The things wrapped in bright boxes are nice tokens, and much appreciated, but are not a substitute for the gift of yourself. You are the very best thing you have to give. All else pales in insignificance.

In all the rush to give just the right item, add value by adding the gift of yourself. It will make a major difference in the worth of the gift that is received.
Give the best you have to give -- you!

- Ralph Marston
