I love giving. Whether that be making breakfast for my children in the morning, a cup of tea for my lover of an evening, or gifting a friend something special.
As a mother giving is part of my everyday expression within our family. Sometimes though I feel the need to give gifts to shift “my stuff”; for me it is a great way to release
my heart energy from perceived self-absorbance towards gratitude for those special people around me. I love this way of re-orientating myself. I love making the wrapping paper and cards or finding a special ribbon to bind or a special trinket to adorn the present. I love the element of surprise that others receive through unexpected gifts.
Today, a dear friend gave me a gift. I felt buoyed by the fact that she had thought of me in such a precious way. Receiving does not come as easily for me, it is something I need to consciously practice and not block. (I hear this from a lot of women, why do we do this?) In addition to her generosity I was taken by the gorgeous wrapping and love what was inside! A perfect gift, a perfect read, for this time in my life. Thank you dear friend. Another reminder that my life is blessed.
