Thoughts on gifts…
"The most memorable gifts are a little mirror in which we see ourselves through the loving eyes of the giver." – Judith Thurman
"When a gift is well chosen, it intuit's a heart's desire." – unknown
"Giving is a form of dialogue. The most memorable gifts seem to answer a question, settle a doubt, or anticipate a want the recipient perhaps hasn't yet thought of or been able to express."
A gift is…"the surprise grace of the giver's recognition."
"What we wanted of gifts, then and now, was a dose of delight, and something that expressed recognition of ourselves." -Catherine Calvert
"…the gifts that aren't there are often a secret longing unsatisfied…"
"Love the Giver."
The gifts that mean the most to me now are the thoughtful rememberences from the people I love – especially the time they give to me, for I love the giver…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Give with thought. Be creative. Give with care.
