But, when I realized that receiving gifts--just material things I need--doesn't do much for me (read The Five Love languages), and given the fact that I don't want for much, I decided to stop keeping a list.
What has been the result of this?
I don't get gifts! :-) And, that's okay! When I do, I know that they are special... sometimes they are handmade, they almost always come with special words from the gift-giver. I like it a lot more this way.
If you ever want to give me a gift, then join my Kiva Lending Team and let your own giving make the whole team feel good! We've made nearly 7500 loans at a total of $250,000 dollars to entrepreneurs all over the world. GOT $25 in your PayPal account... that's all you need to get started!
