Giving for Thanksgiving

My friend Lara sent me this poem her grandmother carried in her wallet. She did not know the author.

Today on Thanksgiving I’d like to share it with you:

“We give of ourselves
When we give gifts of the heart:
Love, kindness, joy, understanding,
Sympathy, forgiveness.

We give of ourselves
When we give gifts of the mind:
Ideas, dreams, purposes, ideals,
Principles, inventions, projects, poetry.

We give of ourselves
When we give gifts of the spirit:
Prayer, beauty,
Aspiration, faith.

We give of ourselves
When we give gifts of time:
Patience, attention
Consideration.

We give of ourselves
When we give gifts of words:
Encouragement, inspiration
Guidance.

The finest gift
A man or woman can give
To their age and time
Is the gift of a constructive and creative life.”

All my best to you this Thanksgiving!

Laura

(After a little research, I believe the author may be Wildfred Peterson from The Art of Giving.)
