Even as a little girl, I liked giving gifts as much as receiving them. I always loved trying to figure out the perfect present to make someone happy. Getting birthday presents gradually became less important over the years, probably because I’ve been given so much in life already that there isn’t anything much that I need or want. We are blessed with a roof over our heads, food to eat, clothing to wear, relatively good health, enough money for bills and the more than occasional dinner out (which is really a gift to my family because you know I’m not much of a cook!)
But more than that, we have an abundance of riches in the people in our lives. Both hubby and I come from larger families so we share a big blended family of siblings and their spouses, cousins, nieces and nephews, children, stepchildren, grandchildren and even a great grandbaby.
So many others have come into our life, people who’ve chosen to be here — long time friends, new friends, work friends, neighbors, my ladies who lunch girlfriends and now my new virtual blogging friends. The presence of all you wonderful people means more to me than I could ever explain and I thank you for being part of my life…
