Ok, so I very inadvertently left out some details from Vegas, and I will work on a post that includes them.
But now, a break in our regularly scheduled programming.
I gave O'Connor his Christmas gift today and it inspired this post.
I love giving gifts!
More than I can express in words.
I love coming up with a gift that I think a person will love.
I love picking it out.
I love wrapping it up.
And I love watching them open it and seeing the joy in their face.
There is really nothing that makes me happier than to give someone a gift meant just for them, that they truly enjoy.
And if you live far away from me and I send you a gift, it makes my heart warm to think of you opening it up and enjoying it.
I love gift-giving so much, that I have a hard time keeping gifts a secret and not giving them before it's time.
I'm afraid that someday when someone lives with me, and I buy their gifts, and hide them in the closet all wrapped up and pretty, I'm not going to be able to wait for the occasion to give it them.
