The Act of Giving

Today I made a shopping list and checked it twice and then lost it in the first shop I was in – aargh!  Bet a couple of you guys and gals are sitting there nodding furiously thinking ‘Yes, I know that feeling oh so well!’  It was busy busy busy in the shops being that it is less than a week until Christmas.   Got most of it done I think and I’m excited about the gifts we have bought friends and family.  Pondering on the act of ‘giving’, I believe that it is important to give gifts to friends and family at Christmas time, but even more important is the gift of time that we are able to offer to them.  I don’t feel that we can buy love, friendship or happiness with a million dollar gift even… it’s the time that we spent with that person and the thought that we put into the gift that counts for more!
