a gift worth a million smiles of heart

It’s the thought behind each gift which makes it so very special. Yesterday, my 8-year old niece presented me with a gift, wrapped up beautifully and tied with a ribbon where she slipped a beautiful pink rose. ‘Baby Doll, what did you get me?!’ I asked her with excitement. ‘Oh, it’s nothing new she told me… These are things which I had in the house: It’s a writing pad because you always write, a folding cup so that you can carry it in your bag when you travel, a teddy bear magnet because you love magnets so much and a rose which you have to put in water! Oh, and do you remember this wrapping paper? You gave it to me’, she said with a smile. The innocence of children, the purity of their thoughts and their unconditional love in everything including gifts which bear no price tag yet they are filled with so much unconditional love! A gift worth a million smiles of heart indeed!ViolettaGift

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
