Ponderings


No one has ever become poor by giving.

— Anne Frank, diarist, 1929-1945

Giving presents is a talent: to know what a person wants, to know when and how to get it, to give it lovingly and well.
— Pamela Glenconner, writer, 1871-1928

  1. I am working on that talent... it is the 'knowing what to give' that has me stumped.
    Then when is easy this time of year.

  2. Anne Frank. I had the honor of going to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam when I was 15. Wish I had appreciated it more. Love, Esther

  4. My Mom is one who spends a great deal of time making gifts personal. She isn't a crafter, so she doesn't mind having help with the wrapping or utilizing elegant store-bought wraps. However, she puts a great deal of thought into her gifts, always integrating the recipient's personality.

    What a wonderful experience to have visited Anne Frank's home! With age, we really begin to recognize the gifts we have been given. I know there are many things that I look back on with new eyes.

    Thanks to all for your comments!

  5. Giving is something I give a lot of thought to. Both charitable and in other ways, and I can say that I have a richer life for having done my best to give from my heart.
    Thank you for putting the emphasis on such things.
    Best wishes to you.
