A Thought About Gift Giving

In the Christmas classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the Grinch learns that Christmas isn't just about the gifts. After stealing all the Whos' gifts, he says, "It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags." And he slowly begins to realize that "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas...means a little bit more."

I know everyone gets caught up in finding just the perfect gift to give during the holidays. When I was a teacher, teaching in a low to middle income school, I didn't get many gifts in comparison to the armloads of gifts that my sons' teachers receive. Over the years, though, I realized that the best gifts truly are the ones that come from the heart.

And it all started with a little girl named Sara.
