So I’ve decided to take the 31 days writing challenge posed by  For the next 31 days, I will be writing about Word Gifts. I’m a lover of gifts, not only receiving them but giving them. But for the next 31 days, I’m going to write about ways to give gifts in the form of words – some days I hope to inspire you to write, or to read a new book, or to simply say the things that need to be said to those you love.  Check in each day for new way to give the gift of words.

Let’s consider a few good words to set us on our journey:

The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deed left undone. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own. – Carol Burnett

Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity. – Herman Hesse

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. –Mother Teresa

Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is neccessary. – Margaret Cousins

Pleasing words are like honey. They are sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Now that we’re on our way. Join the challenge with me by actually giving one of the word gifts over the next 31 days.  When you do, I want to hear about it!

In honor of today’s topic, what’s the most special gift you’ve ever received?

    I love reading your posts, and after this one would like to send you a little care package. How would I go about doing that? You can write me back via the email address I used for this post. 🙂

    One of the most special gifts I have ever received was a jar of hand-written recorded memories that I had shared over many years with my bosom friend . It was gifted to me for a special occasion, (not sure which one – ha!) and I adore it as much today, if not more, than I did when it was first given to me. It sits on the nightstand beside my bed, and whenever I am feeling friend lonely, I take a memory out and reread/relive it. It fills me with such incredible comfort, joy and love, and it makes the miles between us feel a little less, because distance can always bridged by words, when no other way is possible. 🙂
