Merry Day After Christmas!
I’m resting today but I just want to show you Jessie’s new shoes:
They have barely left her feet. She wore them yesterday to my in-laws’ party paired with a lime green Easter dress. Nothing beats pink, feathered high heels when you are a seven-year old girl. It is first grade haute couture.
The heels were one of my favorite gifts. The other was the Kindle Fire I gave to Mark. Men are so difficult to buy for and Mark always manages to make sure I’ll be pleased with my presents. I felt under pressure this year especially since I didn’t do so well last year with his gifts. I pestered Max multiple times, “Are you sure he’ll like it?” It was the first gift Mark opened and I could tell by his eyes he was happy with it. What a relief!
“It is better to give than to receive,” is not an entirely selfless act. I love receiving presents and I received many this year that I love. But when you give a gift that is just right, that is appreciated and you know you did good, that is a great gift right back atcha.
