It Really is the Thought that Counts

gift

The sweetness of receiving gifts comes from the thought the giver put into them.

Receiving a birthday cake charm with pink (my favourite colour!) candles from my daughter… A necklace from my son because he remembered that I had commented months ago that it was “cute”… Other things that close ones know I love: flowers, chocolate, books, wine, and home décor. And every birthday greeting and kind word a gift in itself. Each gift was thought-full.

So while I love the gifts, it is the thoughts I love more.

  1. It’s wonderful to have a thoughtful family whose members actually listen to you and know you well enough to give you the perfect gift (however cliché it sounds…). You’re a lucky person. P.S. Happy belated birthday!
