RIBBONS

RIBBONS
No one can say a gift isn't deposited in your spirit everyday, but it's up to you to you to untie the ribbon. This is one of the reasons for getting up early before the world invades our psyches; it gives us that ability to look for without distraction the gift that waits for us somewhere near-by. When we locate it we are not to stand there staring at it, but rather, delicately pull the strands of ribbon to release the jolly goods within, it's yours, whatever's in the box is yours, nobody else can lay claim to it. It might be a song, a zebra, a revelation about a child or parent, a brilliant idea to get you out of your all consuming debt, a fanciful outworld vision of solutions to the problems of children that you can write a book about; it doesn't matter what it is, but what does matter is that everybody on this planet gets A GIFT EVERYDAY, the ones that didn't did not untie the ribbon.
