Gifts can come in many forms. An exchange of ideas, feelings or actions can some of the greatest gifts of all. Don’t turn your back on those who try to give something back. No matter how small the gesture seems to be, it maybe all they have to offer. Accept it with grace and gratitude.
You may not be expecting anything in return, but don’t get upset when someone tries to give something back and it’s not what you think it should be. Or not what you wanted. It maybe it’s everything to them and all they have to give.
Homemade bread, pies, or an exchange of services maybe the most important thing to some people. Holding more value to them than anything that could be bought.
Give others a sense of self pride and allow them to return you kindness. Even if you don’t think it’s necessary. Don’t take their moment away from and make it seem like what they have to give has value. Allow them to stand up straight and feel they have paid the debt even if you don’t think it needed to be repaid.
Don’t turn your nose up at such gifts or gestures. They contain more love and kindness than something bought at the fanciest store, with the most expensive label or the most coveted monetary value. If it’s made or offered with love and great gratitude, accept it with pride and simply say thank you.
