'The Gift'

Principles are timeless truths/concepts/proverbs for our ponderance.

Thank you Steemit readers.

Bonjour mon ami.

So happy to hear you can appreciate the principle. ^__^

Here's hoping you had a lovely week end.

A bientot.


Love the composition of the photos of tulips (such voluptuous flowers) and how they inspire your graphic work.

Greetings @kathleenscarboro.

Thank you for your artistic compliment and kind words.

All the best to you.


it is really a work to feel is just awesome shots.I love it.

I totally agree with your principle! Really good! And yes, I always appreciate the one who give me the gift more than the gift itself.

Beautiful flowers in bright colors! Your artworks in black and white is also amazing. Good job, as always!

Wishing you and yours all the best. ;)

Thank you @tangmo for stopping by.....always appreciate it.

Your kind complimentary words are welcome.

Thank you for your good wishes......wishing the same to you and yours. ^__^


It's always my great pleasure....

All the best to you and your family! ;)

When we are children we are excited about the presents and the fact of having them, but with the time we see how the values are changing, I see on my son's example, when he receives presents I look at his reaction and you know he never disappointed, even if he really did not like the presents but he really showed his appreciation and this was purely coming from his heart.

The same with many of us, it is not the fact to get a gift but to get attention and appreciate the appreciation of those people who values you.

By the way, beautiful tulips, in this stage they are still not open, the best stage that I love, I always hope that it takes longer to stay like just picked up :)

Hiya @stef1.

Thank you for your thought full reply.

Your little one sounds darling. ^__^

Appreciate the compliments......very kind.

All the best.

Thank you for stopping by @tornadoman.

So true. ^__^



very cool Principle, " Whether you like a gift or not is not the issue. It is the giver you appreciate."
the flowers so brautiful, and great editng.

Thank you @longberry.

Lovely to hear you have appreciation for the principle and the photographs.

All the best to you.

I completely agree with this. Often people forget that the reason for the gift is that someone cares. Your message and photos are beautiful!

Thank you @nat-expressions for your kind words.

Appreciate that you have capacity for the principle and the photographs.

All the best to you. ^__^


Tulips are one of my favorite flowers. Any color, every color.

I particularly love the edit in your last photo. Thank you for posting it.

I taught my children (now grown) that their presence is always more appreciated than their presents. (Not that I didn't appreciate their gifts - I love gifts!! but I love them more.)

Nice post @bleujay. Have a nice week!

Greetings @countrygirl.

Thank you for your lovely reply and kind compliments.

Appreciate you stopping always.


Well completely agree to those words. Sometimes we just see the value of the gift but we often forget the emotion/love that is behind it .While we should not forget that.

Thanks for the words buddy !

Thank you for stopping by @rehan12. cannot buy thought.....a person had you in their thoughts.....

All the best. Cheers.

(Good manners and consideration of others will take you away.)

Respect is my favorite word, because it is linked to a good testimony of what your life is, I really like your work and I can tell you with all respect that you give many good thoughts, receive a cordial greeting from beautiful Venezuela.

Greetings @ecxiqia04.

Thank you for your kind words.

So happy to hear you appreciate the posts.

All the best.


Love this principle.

We have a saying with my grandmother that one blesses her greatly by eating her food. She adores hospitality and caring for the needs of people - it doesn’t hurt that she is an outstanding cook.

May The Lord smile upon your day, @bleujay.

Thank you for dropping by @lydon.sipe.

How lovely to know a person such as you have described and be your grandmother as well.....perhaps she has the gift of hospitality. ^__^

Thank you for your kind wishes.

All the best to you and @mustardseed.

Welcome to Steemit.

Yes, the gift is not important, but the feeling behind it is important because gift is perishable but the feeling is not and if you can develop positive feelings for you in others then that's greatest thing than anything and we should not lose the emotional connection, because emotional connection is more important than materialistic connection.

And good to see that you are writing to teach newbies how to behave in comments to get true engagement and i personally can connect with this post because, when i joined Steemit i was unaware from in and out concept of Steemit and i was making one line comment and sometimes leaved post link too, but one day i got an reply as "These few words are not giving any value to my post, and to give value write something in depth", literally speaking these words really pinched me in an good way and from that day i started to post organic comments and in depth, and in 218 days almost I've posted around 12300 post combined of blog post, Comments and Replies and all are organic and now i am proud of myself because the response which i am getting now, that's really satisfying.

Thanks for sharing this post with us and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂
