Day 66: Panda's Gift
Thought of the day: Christmas is a good time to think about what makes one happy. As I heard, one side effect of the recession was that it may have changed gift making in some subtle ways. Instead of a lot of material gifts, people are giving more time to their family. I think this will make people on both the giving and receiving ends happier. My favorite gift this year was a story written by Jasmine for me. It was inspired by a story called Quiltmaker's Gift that her teacher read in school. Here is Jasmine's story: Panda's Gift. True happiness comes from giving, from family intimacy and from within, and not from material wealth or the pursuing of it.
