given quietly on a paper napkin slid across a diner tabletop she gets his number. he wonders if she’ll really call or if the thrill of confidence was enough of a gift.

Something passed on. Something shifted. Something covered with good intentions, and feelings, and thoughts so that when opened it elicits laughter and joy from the other person. Something to wish to pass on, and something to leave behind.

someone who cares for you or wants to kiss your ass just got you something that you more than likely dont like or need.

“Surprise me,” he said.
He was not going to like the surprise.

The people I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by are the true gifts in my life. There is no hope or love in being alone. Those around you make you better by allowing you to show the person you really are, no lies – just truth.

“Here you go hija,” My aunt said, handing me a small package wrapped neatly in red. I ripped it open and saw the words “Slimmers Cookbook” in large blue letters on the cover.

I like to give gifts. I like choosing something for other people even more than I like receiving gifts. Presents shouldn’t be chosen carelessly, as they say something about the giver as well as the recipient. I don’t know whether I felt this way as a child. Probably not.

it is in giving that we receive. that’s life. giving and receiving. you’re always at one end or the other. anywhere in between is just waiting.

I would like to be gifted with a better singing voice. Maybe I’ll write to Santa. Do you think he can come through? Practice and patience are gifts I can give myself.
When we’re young, they so much to us, however, the older we become, our interest in receiving gifts slowly diminishes..

It’s not that I’m ungrateful. It’s just that she gives the same $25 dollar gift certificate every birthday and Channuka and no matter where I live, it’s just not a good idea to go to that store.

I’ve been given the gift of life,of sight,of happiness, and I am so grateful for the fuckup that brought me into this world.

I have a gift for my friend, I don’t know if I should give it to him though. He hasn’t been worthy of my time lately. I still love him though, and I still want to be his friend, but I don’t know what to do. Happy birthday, Matthew.

This is a curse, not a gift. This powerful, supercomputer brain of mine which can weave scenarios and instances and complicated mathematical equations just… like… that… Some say I’m smart and that I should be thankful for this smartness. I say I just think too much.

First thought: my brown KAte Spade purse. A gift is an act of generousity from a friend for an unexpected reason

The real gift is of life. Just to be here, on this planet is a miracle. A miracle that we take for granted. We are so busy DOING things that we forget to just sit quietly and think about what it means to be here. We are called Humane Beings…Not Human Doings. Have a peaceful day.

We gave them gifts of gold, myrrh, and smallpox, and we expect in return nothing less than the surrender of their gods and traditions. I lifted my bow into the air and called out the faint hymn of nature.

Gifts can be amazing things. They should be personal though. Not gift cards, though money is often appreciated greatly as a gift. It’s much better to give someone a gift that is special to their likes and dislikes. It makes it so much better.
