I appreciate the act of gift-giving. It is really a special privilege. I know that at Christmas I get way more satisfaction out of presenting gifts to others than I get from receiving gifts. And I like receiving gifts a lot. The best gifts are the ones that you really think about. And the ones you make are even better. I like thinking about my husband and what he might enjoy. My favorite gift I gave to my husband was a framed picture of an album cover. My husband’s father sang in a professional gospel band. I ordered the cd and photocopied the cover and had it framed and matted. It hangs in his office. I think he really appreciated it. It was a gift of family and love and although it wasn’t handmade per se, it was something I created from my idea. It is a privilege to give to others and it feels so warm and yummy!
