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.
What is the best gift you’ve received?
