The best Christmas gift for me

I love to give gifts—at Christmastime, and all year long! The gift of giving comes in so many packages—not just wrapped with pretty paper and a bow. We can give of our goodness, talent, experience, enthusiasm, time . . . the list goes on.

Recently, I gave someone a gift bag with a present inside, simply because I wanted to. The person’s reply was, “Oh, you didn’t have to do that!” This improvisational gesture gave me such an exuberant feeling of love that in hindsight, it almost seems like a selfish reason for giving. But really, it’s very natural to want to give.

We'd love to hear from you!
