During COVID my neighbor has learned to paint in watercolors. She has gifted me two of her paintings now. I love them. During the pandemic, I have learned to bake cookies so deftly that my kids drop by (masks on) to carry a batch of chippers home with them.
In these times, gifts can seem expensive and complicated—or maybe not. Write about the simple and thoughtful gifts you have received in your life—an act of kindness, a batch of cookies, a tiny plant left by your doorstep, a homemade mask, a drawing from a child, seeds for your garden, a candle, a helpful book, a knitted scarf, a poem, a children’s book that holds meaning for you, or a simple heartfelt note. Write about what these gifts have meant to you.
Then write about simple but wonderful gifts you would like to create or share with others during this season of Hanukah and Christmas. Enjoy writing about giving. Giving and writing about it proves to be as uplifting as the act of gratitude. (It releases the feel-good hormones in your brain.) May this help you enjoy creating and giving—in simple and thoughtful ways in the coming weeks.
