Today, I'm thankful for:
No, I'm not specifically referring to talents or blessings or stuff like that. I'm focusing on the gifts we get for special occasions, one person to the other. Did you know that certain people feel most loved when someone gives them a gift? It's not selfishness or materialism, it's simply how they're wired. It doesn't matter what the gift is, the simple gesture of being given a gift is their love language. Likewise for some, giving a gift is how they best know how to express their love.
I'm not necessarily one of these people. I can't for the life of me find suitable birthday or Christmas gifts on a whim. It requires a great deal of deliberation and some minor angst. But it's still fun to receive presents. And, when I knock a present out of the park (metaphorically), it's great to see their faces light up.
