A Gift

I have no gift to give you, just myself, my love,
and a prayer for blessings.
Happy Birthday!

I came home empty-handed, with empty pockets, and a migraine. You made your dinner and your birthday cake. I slept my migraine away. I had nothing to give you.

I pray for blessings to be showered down on you and for peace to surround you. I give to you my love. It's free, but it's the most valuable gift I have to offer.

What's important? Our little family, our garden, our extended family, pickles and jam, birdhouses and the first red tomato. The phone call from a niece or mom & dad, or homemade birthday cake. A good book or movie. It's the simple things in life that matter - that are the most valuable. I need to remember that you would have enjoyed something homemade, instead of something store bought. I need to remember what is important - You!
