The true gifts

April 7, 2014

Last Saturday morning, my sister Katie handed me something in a little plastic bag, mumbling something about “not doing Christmas this year” and “give it to you now.”

Last Christmas my family all decided to skip the presents this Christmas.  It always becomes too much and none of us need anything anyway, except each other.

This little ring is something my sister just saw somewhere and thought of me, so she bought it for me for no other reason than that.

I realized today that my sister probably has always bought us Christmas presents in April.  But this year she had no reason to wait to give it to me.

I also realized today that she handed me this ring three days ago and I haven’t taken it off.

I am so grateful for my sister, who is one of the most thoughtful and supportive people on the planet.  And for my family that has created space for all of our true gifts to really shine.
