There is something to be said about getting a package in the mail, on your birthday, or at Christmas! Why is it so exciting? I think it is because you usually you don't know what is in it? There is an excitement about wondering about what could possible be inside. It also makes you feel special, because you know someone thought enough about you to buy, make and send you something special.
Today there was a package on the front porch when I got home. It had my name on it, but I just assumed it was for Lauren and Nik's wedding. When Jeff came home he asked me what it was. I told him it was probably for the newlyweds, then I opened it and found this on the package!
How fun to read something that says this when you open it! I think every gift should come in in a package that says..." Open Me For Instant Happiness", because no matter what it is...don't you hope that they feel that way about any gift you send, make and give from your heart?
So I guess you could say, I love making and sending gifts, but ultimately when they open it, I hope they feel like I did...INSTANT HAPPINESS ...for a friendship that has meant a lot to me. That is truly the gift!
Life is so busy and full, it was a great reminder to me to stop and take the time to make, buy or give someone you care about a gift, I don't think it has to be big or expensive...just from your heart.
Remember that is the real present!
Good night dear friends!
