Eight Words

I found this idea elsewhere, and thought I would pass it along.

Can't think of a gift for the person who has everything?
Is your budget, like so many of us, too tight for extravagance?

Give from your heart. Give eight words of advice, eight words of thought, eight words that mean something. write 'em down, and hand 'em out.
The best gift you can give are your words. It's what is remembered.


This post was inspired by a writer's last eight words her mother spoke to her:
"Always order dessert and never buy cheap carpet."



What are your eight words?

Merry Christmas to all of you.
