Gifts come in so many different forms, sizes, prices, and they come for many different reasons. Getting a gift is always a special thing. We have all received these different kinds of gifts and always try to be very thankful. I guess though that the unexpected gifts are the neatest. My wife had a birthday last week and we went out of town to enjoy some time together. It was the month of our anniversary too. We had a great time that we planned for. When we got back to Casa de Niños my wife found this gift bag on her desk. The kids put together a gift from what they had. Things that were special to them and a couple of things they just put into the bag for whatever reason. All the kids wrote a note and included that in the gift bag as well. We laughed at some of the things they put in the bag and wondered why and who put that in. It was very touching the special effort that went into the gift, and reading some of the very sweet words that came from their hearts we realized just how special this gift was. The gift made her feel loved, but that is what a gift should do and be.
"If love is not your main reason for giving a gift then it is probably just an obligation."
