Christmas is next week, and as I'm stressed trying to find the "perfect" gifts for everyone, I suddenly realized the best gifts I ever received. Usually, one must "give" to "get." And although I always try to give everything I can and then some more, I think I'm remembering what I've received . . . which actually may help me to give! So, the old adage may be reversed . . . this time only.
Next, somehow God sent a young man into my life whom I helped to gain his confidence and inspired him toward a path of greatness . . . and his drive, determination, and internal motivation really compelled him toward achievement. He gave me one kidney, that turned out to save my life. What a selfless gift!
The most incredible team of real estate agents -- and an incredible staff of directors, employees, and co-workers -- is also a blessing of a gift. They are my life.
Notice a common theme? My greatest gifts are gifts of LOVE, not THINGS! In fact, can you remember the "things" you got for Christmas last year? A new outfit? A toaster? An iPod? Frankly,
I've been trying to remember and for the life of me . . . I can't! I am so blessed and so grateful for all my gifts!
When I Google-searched "Best Christmas Gifts" (images), it was ALL things (except for a semi-naked lady . . . hmmm . . . ). Have we lost the true meaning? Is is really about going into debt?
What's YOUR best Christmas Gift?
By the way, may I suggest a new home for Christmas? Call me at 832-200-5656 to find yours! -Sam & Team, RE/MAX Top Realty . . . and it does follow my theme . . . Home is where the Heart is . . . it's not just a "thing." God bless you and Merry Christmas . . . and best wishes for a terrific 2016!
