The Wrapping Paper


The Wrapping Paper

This story deeply touches my heart


I love to listen to this

"What is Christmas? 
It is tenderness for the past, 
courage for the present, 
hope for the future. 
It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow 
with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path 
may lead to peace. " ~Agnes M. Pahro

“Even the smallest tender mercy can bring peace 
when recognized and appreciated.” ~Richelle E. Goodrich

“I love you because no two snowflakes are alike, 
and it is possible, if you stand tippy-toe, 
to walk between the raindrops. ” ~ Nikki Giovanni 

"Starting today, I need to forget what`s gone, appreciate what still remains, and look forward to what is coming next."

“Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a 

truly Merry Christmas.” ~Peg Bracken

In your hands winter
is a book with cloud pages
that snow pearls of love.” ~Aberjhani

“Perfectly Imperfect" "We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectivenessfor its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path. Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind... there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey. I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered... we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I’m not perfect for your journey and you’re not perfect for my journey, but I’m perfect for my journey and you’re perfect for your journey. We’re heading to the same place, we’re taking different routes, but we’re both exactly perfect the way we are. Think of what understanding this great orchestration could mean for relationships. Imagine interacting with others knowing that they too each share this parallel with the snowflake. Like you, they are headed to the same place and no matter what they may appear like to you, they have taken the perfect form for their journey. How strong our relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey.” ~Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

The happiest and most successful people are always looking for ways to help others. The unhappiest and most unsuccessful people are still asking, “What’s in it for me?” Ultimately, your greatest successes in life will not be measured by how high you have climbed, but by how many people you have helped up with you.
