I’ve added a NEW goal to my long list of goals! I recently had a birthday, and I decided I want to be more like my dear friend Jill. She is a MASTER gift giver! She is so thoughtful, and I want to cultivate that characteristic in myself! For years, she has always remembered by birthday….always given me sweet, thoughtful gifts. I want to be JUST.LIKE.HER!!! She is just as busy as anyone else I know…yet she must make it a priority in her life to be a kind, loving person and show that kindness by being a master gift giver!
Like any skill or habit I try to cultivate, I typically first research ideas on the internet….so that’s what I’ve been doing today. So, of course, I thought I’d share a few links with you. The first thing I’ve done is install a NEW app on my phone especially for reminding me about the birthdays and other special days of the people I love. Next, I read a great blog article entitled ‘The Art of Gift Giving’ at Reeve Writes. Highly recommended! Good stuff. Another article I found was HERE…basically I think master gift givers are really good listeners (with good memories too…or else they write down their gift ideas).
I’m excited to cultivate this NEW skill in my life! Do any of you have any great advice to help me with this endeavor? I’d love to hear from you!
