I love giving gifts. To me, the only thing better than giving a gift is giving a REALLY GOOD gift. One that says to my dear ones: you are seen, you are known, you are cherished. I love letting them know they were thought of, considered, provided or cared for.
I love giving things that are soulful, inspiring, and beautiful. Things that will be good companions for their journey. Things that will remind them that I carry them in my heart.
Because at the end of the day it's not about the things we have or the things we want. It's about celebrating friendship and love. It's about taking time to remember the richness every dear presence brings to our lives--the big picture and the daily kindnesses. It's about expressing gratitude, and receiving love.
May love and gratitude be yours as we enter this season of holiday cheer.
