Precious Gifts




“The most

precious gift

we can offer


is our




Thich Nhat Hanh


A grief shared is the beginning of healing.

A happiness shared is the gift of kindness.

Today, listen closely, give the greatest gift

to those who need healing and compassion.

Today, pay close attention to others,

do not listen just so that you may reply,

listen so that you may be the kind, patient, tolerant,

forgiving, and loving person God wants you to be.

Kindness is compassionate listening.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.
