Today I am participating in Five minute Friday on Kate Motaung’s blog http://www.katemotaung.com. Every Friday, she posts a word and people all over the world write for five minutes from the word.
My son Max is the perfect gift giver. He knows how to choose the perfect gift for people. Sam has this gift, too. They will watch and see things and say, “This would be perfect for Grandpa.” Or, “Dad would love these.” And they are always right. Their gifts are received with such joy and they are cherished. I don’t have the “gift” to pick the perfect gift. I struggle with identifying what a person would need or desire. Max tells me it’s because I don’t pay attention. He believes I just need to be more aware. I think it’s because I don’t have the “gift” of gifting.
