I love both getting and receiving presents, so Christmas is the perfect time of year.
I love the look on a friend or family member’s face when I’ve gotten them the perfect gift, but there’s also a special joy that comes along with opening a package on Christmas morning. It’s important to remember in all our shopping excitement, however, that the whole idea of getting presents is about gratitude. One family trying to instill this value in their young daughter gave her one present early. Her reaction proves that kids sometimes have a better grasp on what matters than we do.
It’s something so small, but she reacts as though it were the biggest and most expensive toy.
