So I’ve decided to take the 31 days writing challenge posed by thenester.com. 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?
