Better to Give *and* to Receive

The other day Mistah went Christmas shopping and bought himself a bunch of stuff. I said, "Dude, aren't you supposed to be shopping for other people?"

He replied, "You know that expression? It's better to give than to receive? Well, I like to give and to receive."

Atta Schelckah.

I've got to tell you, though. I'm not that good at giving or receiving. I like presents, of course I do, but I'm terrible at them. I'm terrible and giving and I'm terrible at receiving.


I like Christmas Trees . . .

and I like Christmas cards . . .

and I like Christmas lights . . .

and I like Christmas parties . . .

and okay, yesterday I delivered a present and, well, I liked giving.

And now? I am ready to receive.

I lectured my children just today about being "takers"... I'm going to force them to buy me gifts tomorrow.

Love you people, you give me joy :)
