When you think of gifts, what comes to mind? Presents? This Christmas, I encourage you to think about the gifts you give to the world every day.
No matter how old you are, I believe everyone has a gift to share. Everyone is gifted! In my book, being gifted does not just mean "having exceptional talent or natural ability," like a gifted athlete or musician. I believe everyone has an extraordinary ability to do something that makes them a better person and makes the world a better place.
