Writing Challenge – The Gift you share

Submissions open all this week! Post your link in the comments for all to read.

If there was one gift you could give to someone what would that be? The gift of friendship, the gift of a smile or the gift of warm baked bread? If it is story telling then write me that story, if it’s baking tell me when it made someone so happy they told you so. If it was singing off key but so spontaneously tell me how it made them feel after?

Tell me how you made someone happy.

Write a poem or a story under 100 words and let’s spread joy next week!

Write about your gift of happiness to someone.

Here’s mine.

Being present

 

I am thankful for the gift

that I can offer someone

to bring joy when they feel sad

just by being present

 

I am thankful for the human heart

that can heal from hurts

when I sit and listen

offer no advice

and just be present

like a gift unopened

my smile a satin ribbon

 

I am thankful for the gift

that I can give

to humbly sit and be still

to listen with my heart

holding theirs

to be silent

and just be present

 

Hope & Light

    • Loved this post! Music is what grounds me and many of my novels have come from one particular song or set of songs. I watched all of them! You and your group have a great talent. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. Gifting confidence, I would if I could.
    I’m certain I never have, as one needs it to gift.
    I’d spread it about because with confidence, accomplishments happen.
    Thus equaling more confidence; additional ideas and successes.
    Brilliant, they become.
    And with each, they can change the world.
