Thank you for your gift
At my granddaughter’s 3rd birthday, I had the
pleasure of witnessing her in the full expression of appreciation
as she greeted each guest: “Thank you for coming to my party!

Discovering one’s gift is the most incredible blessing...
the answer is found in those things in your life you do
naturally... something you would be surprised to acknowledge as a
gift. Find it - own it -acknowledge it... ask your trusted friends
and they will confirm it.

appreciate in others can often be a reflection of our own unique
soul expression. Take time to reflect on those people in your
life you admire and ask the question: “Is what I admire in them
something I am ready to acknowledge in my own life?”
Enjoy this journey... Connect with your gift
and celebrate your life!
Give thanks for the loving connections in my life...
Appreciate the beauty in others...
Connect to my special gift...
And so it is...
