</font></b><br><font size = “3”><p>I'm not sure if you have heard of this book or not. But it's by Charlene Costanzo and it has such a beautiful message. Here is the excerpt I used for this page. I know it's a lot to read but here goes:<p>
At the wondrous moment you were born, as you took your first breath, a great celebration was held in the heavens and twelve magnificent gifts were granted to you.<p>
The first gift is STRENGTH. May you remember to call upon it whenever you need it.<p>
The second gift is BEAUTY. May your deeds reflect its depth.<p>
The third gift is COURAGE. May you speak and act with confidence and use courage to follow your own path.<p>
The fourth gift is COMPASSION. May you be gentle with yourself and others. May you forgive those who hurt you and yourself when you make mistakes.<p>The fifth gift is HOPE. Through each passage and season, may you trust the goodness of life.<p>The sixth gift is JOY. May it keep your heart open and filled with light.<p>The seventh gift is TALENT. May you discover your own special abilities and contribute them toward a better world.<p>The eighth gift is IMAGINATION. May it nourish your visions and dreams.<p>The ninth gift is REVERENCE. May you appreciate the wonder that you are and the miracle of all creation.<p>The tenth gift is WISDOM. Guiding your way, wisdom will lead you through knowledge to understanding. May you hear its soft voice.<p>The eleventh gift is LOVE. It will grow each time you give it away.<p>The twelfth gift is FAITH. May you believe.
Now you know about your twelve gifts of birth. Use your gifts well and you will discover others, among them a gift that is uniquely you. See these noble gifts in other people. Share the truth and be ready for the miracle to unfold…
