The older I get the more joy I get from giving rather than receiving a gift. I have been thinking about that a lot this holiday season as I am shopping for gifts for family and people on my gift list.
I am all about the perfect gift, and feel I am well on my way to that for many people. As I get older I have a little more to spend on gifts, but its not about that. To me its about finding what will bring people the most happiness, fulfill a need, or a surprise they weren't expecting. The gifts for my partner, parents, and even my sister I believe fulfill those requisites.
And the joy when they receive the gifts, that's the best part of all.
