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 ;-)
