Cherish All Gifts

inner peace

We all like to give and receive gifts.

Sometimes, as the giver, we have to hunt high and low, to find that perfect item for the special person, and occasion we are celebrating.

Often though, the best gifts are the ones we don’t buy but the ones we personally create.

For example, years ago, I had heard about a mother named Charlene Costanzo who had written down 12 loving messages for her two daughters as a personal gift of life lessons, and to describe the gifts we are born with.

Later, she would turn it into a book called The Twelve Gifts of Birth, so that others could enjoy them as well.

Below are the twelve gifts she wrote about, which we are all blessed with at birth, and can enjoy for a lifetime.

  1. Dear Cathie,
    Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story and the gifts that are revealed through it.
    For me, the best gift is really a combination of them all, as one carries and enhances the other and together they build a net that catches you when you feel as if you are loosing your footing.
    However, ultimately one could probably boil it all down to love as the essence. 😉
    Much love,

    • Dear Steffi, Love the way you write, and express yourself! Yes, truly all the gifts mentioned in the post do enhance the other, and as you say, together build a net! Agreed, LOVE is woven through everything, and is so profoundly healing and joyful! Thank you as always for your valuable comments! 🙂 Love, Cathie
