The Gift

Why is the gift always so competitive? Why must it always have to be the most expensive, the shiniest, the most thoughtful, the most creative?

Why can't the gift be a presence, a thought, a memory. How materialistic our society has become. "It's the thought that counts" has become a pitiful, guilty phrase.

Nobody wants to give a half-ass gift. When the receiver opens your gift, you want them to light up. You want them to be surprised and not because they are forcing it.

What a stirring feeling to know that your gift is pure perfection. So I run to Target, because it is the only place I have a credit card to, and the only way I can afford gifts this year.

I proceed to take out my hand-written list of gift ideas, trying to be as creative and thoughtful as possible.

In the back of my mind I am praying they will suffice and then realize that those who love me want nothing more than to see me smile, and to witness me enjoying my life.

I also experience pure joy when I see my beloved family and friends smiling. The best things in life are made simply.
