Yesterdays' 1st snow reminded me that gifting season is upon us. It's time to pick out all the perfect somethings for everyone whom you celebrate in your life. It can be a beautiful time of reflection, thankfulness and wonder at the spirit in life and the people around you as long as you keep the man-made, material elements of the season under control. Remember the place they really hold. Gifts and gestures should be the symbol of the emotional connection you have with the person, cause or organization. Honor that connection more than the gift. Do what you can with the right sentiment place, so you don't find yourself off-balance this holiday season.
