I have this sweet, yet odd and wonderful duck of a friend named "Sparkles". God has given her an amazing gift, one she uses in her daily life. Since our first meeting a couple years ago, she shared this talent with me out of love and pure generosity. As I wind down my "secret" gift for my parents' anniversary, I needed a little help from a friend. (I could break out in song, couldn't you?)
After reading her email this morning I tried to think of a way to bless her and honor her wishes so I share this poem with you. Sparkles, there is a little ditty at the end for you too. A song special to me and now I share it with you.
Thank You IS Enough

Why do people feel the need to return a gift?
A gift is given as a small token
Of one's appreciation and love for you.
When I less you with a little something
I'm not looking for an item in return
Two words are enough, if you get my drift
Nothing need be bought, only spoken
It doesn't require you to overdo
Or have your wallet sting
Yet the concept is one many need to learn
I enjoy seeing your spirits lift
As you read and open this tiny little token
For my love for you is true
Two little words that cost not a penny
Yet have a joyful and refreshing ring
Thank You is all you need to express in return
