Looking at the lines of the tree are intertwined. It is rugged and it seems that each crevice is touching each other. Now a tree has many gifts: one it is home to many animals. The birds’ nest in its branches and sing their songs. Tiny critters crawl and get warmth in its holes. Some squirrels climb tree to tree finding their stores of accorns.
There is a gift that each one us gives the gift of self. Is is good or evil? Whenever we talk to another person we give a piece of our self. When we write something down we may be given to generations to come. Just think of Leonardo Da Vinci some still read and look of his work and he died centries ago. Jesus died even linger ago and his sayings still live. We give the gift of self every day we live a good life. The Bad gift is selfishness and destroys gifts, but the good gift of self lives on forever.———

I have been Working with people for many years (children and adults). I do want to help others. For when you help others you help our self.
