Ten gifts money can’t buy–#Writer’s Quote Wednesday, #BeWoW

 1. A Smile

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

Mother Theresa, 1910-1997

2. Time

Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

∼ Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?

3. Love

Love is the best gift because it’s free to give and priceless to receive.

Jarod Kintz, Love Quotes for the Ages

4. Attention

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

Thích Nhất Hạnh

5. Encouragement, Faith

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.

∼ Jim Valvano

6. Honesty

The most valuable gift you can receive is an honest friend.

7. Kindness, Caring

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Leo Buscaglia

8.  Trust

Trust is by far the hardest gift to give away.

∼ Raine Miller, Eyes Wide Open

I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.

∼ Audrey Hepburn

Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other.
