Chapter 9, Page 30, Book 15

Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.

Leo Buscaglia

September 30th - Love is a gift that is free.

There are bad times, but thats okay, just look for the love in it, don't burn the day away.

Dave Matthews Band

What is the greatest gift of love? It’s not diamonds, flowers, or chocolate. The greatest gift of love you can give is focused attention.  The essence of relationships is how much of ourselves we give to each other.  People want your attention. They want your focus. They want to know that you think they matter. Nothing can replace time

Everyone has a gift for something, even if it is the gift of being a good friend.

Marian Anderson

We need to look for opportunities to show attention to the people in our life. That is the greatest gift of love we can give! But don’t just wait for it to happen; make opportunities to show attention.

Love is the only gift that’s acceptable to give away as soon as you get it.

Jarod Kintz

Take time to thank God for His love and all the people who love you! It is His gift to you and, I believe, one of the most valuable gifts that you will ever receive.

Remember:  Love is a gift, not a reward for performance.

That is so true, Ma, that love is a gift and not a reward for performance. It should always be given out freely too!

Tall is a sweet time. Fitting, your words of love. I do not know many trees by their leaves, but seeing the yellow sassafras leaves brought back my child hood when with a lot of love mama introduced me to Sassafras tea and finding the roots.
I did enjoy the read and pictures...
