I watched a lot of people get gifts today. The gifts were given anonymously. And the people who received them liked getting the gifts, but watching them open them was sad. They weren’t appreciative on the whole. Then I realized I didn’t really blame them. It’s hard to get excited about a gift without having the connection from the giver. It’s a bastardization of the reason for a gift. We give gifts because we care about people. A good gift should leave the giver vulnerable and should bare a bit of the giver’s soul.
I challenge you to give a gift like that.
