They say the best things in life are free... some days I would beg to differ. Other days, I totally agree. In pondering what gifts I've been given that cost nothing (at least monetarily wise), I would have to say today's would be UNDERSTANDING.

I can give this to someone by just trying to understand where they are coming from, what they are going through, having compassion. Which in it's self is another gift. How much does it mean to someone when we just listen, understand, and have a tiny bit of compassion. How much better would this world be if we truly had understand and compassion for others? Real honest to goodness understanding of a person or situation... taking the time to find out and not run away if it's hard or not pretty.

OK I've rambled on enough... hope this makes sense... it does to me... but I well... I'm UNIQUE! One of a kind... (thank goodness... I know I'm wonderful, but goodness 2 of me... lol ;-)


  1. I have never even met you and I think you are pretty darned special. Hope you have a decent day. Take care.

  2. I get it. I agree. I've not always gotten it. I've sometimes not agreed (w/others) and gotten it....wrong. And I'm learning more about it all the time. Today even, something in the mail. Seems like I was going through this the other day, with something else, and the day before that, with something else, else. Sometimes, I lose count. (Now, you're probably thinking I don't make sense either!) Life. Faith. Curve balls. Getting it. Life. Faith.... You made perfect sense to me! And I appreciate what you wrote. Thanks! :) Jenn

  3. I know what you mean. When that gift is really needed, and when it's hardest to extend it, is when somebody's really rubbing you the wrong way. We never know where somebody else is coming from, and I truly think that most people don't mean to be abrasive.
