To My Aunt

It's not the things that can be bought
that are life's richest treasure,
It's just the little heart gifts
that money cannot measure ...
A cheerful smile, a friendly word,
a sympathetic nod
Are priceless little treasures
from the storehouse of our God ...
They are the things that can't be bought
with silver or with gold,
For thoughtfulness and kindness and love
are never sold ...
They are the priceless things in life
for which no one can pay,
And the giver finds rich recompense
in giving them away.
And who does more good for others
that everyone else can't
Than my understanding, kind
and wise and selfless,
loving Aunt.

Aunt Laura had a way with people putting them at ease. When she laughed her whole soul went into it and a crowded room could hear her. It was natural, uplifting, and a delight.
