So, the big question after the Christmas holiday is "what was the favorite gift?" Kids are easy. It's always the number one item on their list. Well, except maybe the boy. But he got everything on his list (which was small so easy). My oldest daughter, was her Coach tennies. NOT the design she asked for but in this she sometimes leaves things up to my discretion and I think I exceeded her expectations. Middle daughter was the personalized basketball jacket. Beanie, the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (OK...that was SORTA for me too...ahem).
Since we did the floors and got the new table,
there wasn't much more on my list I wanted.
So, if you think the table and chairs and floors, which were desperately needed, were my favorite gift, think again. My favorite gift has a little story to it. All of my emails end with the following tag line:
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, But rather, a skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, worn out and screaming 'WHOO HOO what a ride!'"
I love that line and try to live my life by that premise. So, my favorite gift this year was from a friend who found a T-shirt that embodies my tag line. It says "Live Imperfectly with Great Delight"
I have finally found a friend who "gets me".
