“How good it is to have you, that you are there, and that I can make you a gift of everything and all that I have.” This beautiful little sentence wowed me this week. We’re so familiar with the phrase and concept of “giving of” our time, our resources, ourselves. But “making a gift of ” sounds and is so much sweeter. Like just the kind of thing our marriages should be- daily making gifts of our care, gifts of our time, gifts of our bodies, gifts of our love, our strengths, our minds. No IOU’s, just gifts. A dialogue of gifts. Because “giving is itself a kind of thank-offering.”
Valen+Tanya, lovely people full of light, that’s my wish for you –
the beautiful dialogue of gifts ever after.
