Is your gift wrapped with strings?
November 5, 2018

“If you keep anything long enough you can throw it away.”

presentIt’s an echo I’ve heard often over the years when I’ve decided it was okay to part with a present I hated. You have a few of those yourself, I bet. A ghastly sweater, a garish picture frame, a ghoulish lawn ornament.

I’ve shrunk the time between thanking someone for a gift and moving it on. It’s the thought that counts, after all, even if you wonder what the bestower was thinking.

If that bestower requires you to don or display the present, it wasn’t really a present, was it? It was an order.

Thanks, anyway!
