Life is a gift. One that, once lost, is never given again. It's more valuable than diamonds, rarer than the the most prized ruby and more perishable than the best dishes.
Love is a gift. Not easily won, no matter how fast things go. Months for one person, days for another. The cheapest to get, and the hardest to loose. But it is a fickle thing- one wrong word, one wrong move, and it fades away, disappearing into the whispering air.
Children are a gift. One that only few people give thanks for. Others- for others, a child's laugh is something to worry about, a hug that is pushed away, a drawing that is christened ugly, and a life that is ignored.
I suppose this was rather short, but I hope you enjoyed it! Also, I need to stop forgetting my linkups- I'll be sure to make Silver Lining Sundays and we'll pick up from there. Also, did I tell you I won last week's Beauty in Design Challenge? For those of you who voted for me, thanks, because I had a lot of fun. :)
