Chapter 12, Page 2, Book 19

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.

Peg Bracken

December 2nd - the gift of Love

The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance. 

Brian Tracy

Love is one of those gifts that you give yourself as soon as you give it away.  When you give love, you’ll receive love.  If we didn't have love, life wouldn’t mean as much. Love may not make the world go round, but it makes the ride worthwhile.

When the road looks dark ahead, Love will always find a way to make things better.  It starts with you and ends with you.  If you don’t have love for yourself, you can’t expect to get it from someone else.  

Love imposes no demands.  Love is not interested in holding on to something, or someone it is not jealous, but freely given.

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

Love is a gift we can give every day.

I am just enjoying that picture of love. Lifting to set the important final part of the Christmas tree, the star or the angel. Brings back memories of our Tree decorations over the years.
Love it.

Indeed. Like the Beatles told us, "All you need is Love."

Those cookies...I know I won't enjoy every minute of this season, like the wintry mix we're expecting tomorrow, I'm going to be grateful for all the once a year treats this time of year offers.


love should be unconditional. "Love imposes no demands." that is the sweetest little boy putting the star on the tree. is he one of your grandchildren. take care.
