The Twelve Gifts of Birth For Every Child
Once upon a time, a long time ago, when princes and princesses lived in faraway kingdoms, royal children were given twelve special gifts when they were born. You may have heard the stories. Twelve wise women of the kingdom, or fairy godmothers as they were often called, traveled swiftly to the castle whenever a new prince or princess came into the world. Each fairy godmother pronounced a noble gift upon the royal baby.
As time went on, the wise women came to understand that the twelve royal gifts of birth belong to every child, born anywhere at any time. They yearned to proclaim the gifts to all children, but the customs of the land did not allow that. One day when the wise women gathered together they made this prophecy:
“Someday, all the children of the world will learn the truth about their noble inheritance. When that happens a miracle will unfold on the kingdom of Earth.”
Some day is near. Here is the secret they want you to know:
“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.”
Know-How Can You Make Your Life More Blissful
1. Strength Is The First Gift
Strength is the first gift. May you remember to call upon it whenever you need it. Throughout your lifetime you will meet the people who discredit you, disrespect you, and treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all. Take your stand, speak up, and refuse to let others hurt you. Be strong enough to stand alone. But use your strength wisely as your strength loses value if applied wrongly.
2. Beauty Is The Second Gift
Beauty is the second gift. May your deeds reflect its depth. Most people admire physical beauty but always remember beauty is the radiance that comes from strong character and noble deeds. Never accept the false ideology of people who judge you before understanding your character and your heart.

Hope is the fifth gift. Through each passage and season, may you trust the goodness of life. Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear.
