BE YOUR GIFT: March 4, 2021

“Strawberries first shaped my view
of a world full of gifts
simply scattered at your feet.”

Robin Wall Kimmerer, from Braiding Sweetgrass

“Gifts exist
in a realm of humility
and mystery—
as with random acts of kindness,
we do not know their source.”

Robin Wall Kimmerer, from Braiding Sweetgrass

CENTER IN YOUR GIFT OF LISTENING

“A gift comes to you
through no action of your own,
free,
having moved toward you

without your beckoning.”

Robin Wall Kimmerer, from Braiding Sweetgrass

A gift “is not a reward;

you cannot earn it,
or call it to you,
or even deserve it.”

Robin Wall Kimmerer, from Braiding Sweetgrass

And yet, our gifts appear.

Our only role
“is to be open-eyed
and present.”

Robin Wall Kimmerer, from Braiding Sweetgrass
