Heart Gifts

It's not the things that can be bought that are life's richest treasure, it's just the little "heart gifts" that money cannot measure...

A cheerful smile, a friendly word, a sympathetic nod

Are priceless little treasures from the storehouse of our God...

They are the things that can't be bought with silver or with gold, for thoughtfulness and kindness and love are never sold...

They are priceless things in life for which no one can pay, and the giver finds rich recompense in giving them away.

I love the poems written by Helen Steiner Rice.  They all hold such insight and wisdom, yet are very earthy.  I hope you enjoy this little one as much as I do.

Update:  My vegetables are looking a little forlorn.  I had so hoped they would take off and grow big and heavy with squash and tomatoes, etc.  It looks now as if that will definitely not be the case.  A storm with some hail knocked my tiny squash off the plants and made the other plants look pretty pitiful!  I am not ready to give up just yet though.  I think if I apply Miracle Grow and baby them, they just might make it.  I do have a small green tomato and a few peppers, so maybe they will all suddenly have a burst of growth and overnight become the healthy plants I had dreamed of!!!
So much for that ... be sweet everyone!

Hi Polly. Hope you're doing well. So sorry to hear about your veggies :( I have a rose bush which looks like it might not make it. I hate when that happens.
