During Christmas, we receive gifts from relatives and friends. Everyone dotes on the little ones, which means they get an insane amount of presents. I used to feel a pang of jealousy because I used to be the smallest child, and I would get the most presents. Now, I don’t care.
Most of the time, when I did receive a lot of presents, I didn’t really care for them. That’s why I like the amount of gifts I get now. I get about 3 gifts from relatives and clothing from my parents. This year, my favorites are a pair of boots, a thermos, and business clothing. I was excited about these because it was something that I had recently needed.
In the past, all those gifts were just wants or something that I really didn’t even want. Now I appreciate and care about the simple yet useful gifts received.
