I spent the last two days painting ornaments, and will spend the rest of the week and weekend doing so. I forgot how much I enjoy painting - and I like to think I am moderately talented at it....either that, or people are just being really nice about it. (Hmm....) Regardless, it is amazing how much you can do yourself that really means something. Is there anything more valuable than your time? If you think about it, it is one thing that can never be bought, and never be gotten back. And spending your time and energy on something for someone....what a gift! Yes, even those ugly sweaters from Aunt Martha have more meaning than you might realize.
