Everything is a gift. Everyone is a gift granted.

We treasure gifts. We love them. We wished for them in our birthdays, in our graduation, in Christmas. If we are given a gift, no matter how simple it is, we know that we have a place in the heart of the giver. Our hearts smile when we became a receiver of a giver.

The attention, time, and love of the giver is interwoven to the very gift that they have given to us. We embrace them in the night, we always reopen it in the morning.

A gift will always be a mark of love, a confirmation of affection, and a sign of beauty in this life. Without gifts, life would lose thirds of its smiles.

But do you ever think that you yourself is a gift granted?

Yes, each one of us is the ‘someone’ that someone prayed for. Your existence is the reason why he wakes up every morning. You are the face that she thinks of while she is in the classroom. You are his inspiration to continue working hard. You are his motivation to come home every night. You are the voice that she wants to hear. You are the song that he is singing all night. Your touch delivers the warmth she needed in order to live. Your presence means the whole world to him.

Have you ever thank God for you? God sends you as a gift to someone. The gift that will confirm to them that there are something to be thankful for, there are someone to live for.

There are people who cares for you more than they care for themselves. And they are calling you the ‘gift granted’ that makes their existence a stream of gratitude.

Who are your receivers?

  • Your parents? The couple who cried and gave thanks to Almighty when you finally came out because you’re the personification of their love.
  • Your students? Finally they met a teacher who don’t just educate but also inspire.
  • Your daughter? Because you became his sweetest suitor in her teenage years.
  • Your wife? You became the embodiment of faithfulness to her in all these years.
  • Your friends? You've been there in all moments of life: in laughter and tears.
  • A stranger? Because you rejected all your alibis and just love him in the way you understand.
You are never been worthless. No matter how life and other people reject you, there are still eyes that looks to you every day and mutter thanks because you are there, that you're given.

Smile and give yourself, once again. You are a gift granted.
