The impatience I guess, comes from the fact that we are now at the opposite end. Instead of being the reciever, we are now the giver. And the responsibility to be a giver seems to come with a great price and most often, we underappreciate its value. We become to engrossed with giving the cutest, priciest, nicest gifts that we forget to take into account the essence of the role. Because although we always complain of the Christmas rush, the stress and the money spent, there is no better feeling in the world than knowing that you have made someone happy. That is the gift we recieve for giving back. So although I grit my teeth and gnaw my nails as Christmas comes close, I also look forward to the memories of wide smiles and warm laughter, which although not wrapped in glittering paper is a wonderful gift nonetheless.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
