When I was a little girl, my mother occasionally gave me gifts at random. They were always simple gifts, but they were so precious because it meant she was thinking of me, even when she didn’t have to. I remember a series of books by Joan Walsh Anglund, and the first one I received was called Christmas is a Time of Giving. I loved that book and the tiny characters with their hearts to give.
The holidays are a time of giving. It’s a time when we step back, think of others, and make a conscious choice to give to them. And gifts don’t have to be expensive. In fact, small purchases — like BOOKS — make ideal gifts whether they’re all wrapped up or stuffed in a stocking.
