The Gift You Gave


A couple of years ago, I gave a gift to a friend... naw she's more than that... she's like a sister. Anyway, I created a series of gifts for her for Christmas.

At the time, I had just separated from my ex-husband and had been without him for like four months. Consequently, she had been there for me through every snot-nosed, tears streaming like a river, eyes puffy, nose swollen cry session and passed no judgement on me and the man I was in love with.

Since giving the gift, I haven't duplicated it nor have I felt as sentimental as I did that Christmas season.

One of the gifts I gave, in the series, was a heart-shaped box filled with a hundred questions that I hand-wrote and rolled into seperate scrolls. I'm a fanatic about diaries and journals. The only time she'd start a journal was when she was going through a break-up so to encourage her to keep writing, I did the hundred question thing. That was a gift I wish someone had given me.

What's yours? What's a gift you gave that you wish someone gave to you?

I wished that my ex-boyfriends would have cared or been more considerate. I wanted that more than the gifts.
