For the month of December, I’m participating in a wonderful project called Reverb10. It calls for bloggers to reflect on daily prompts in preparation for 2011. For more information, see Reverb10.
December 30 – Gift. This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year? (Author: Holly Root)
At the risk of being repetitive, the best gift this year was my son. I’d wanted to be a mother for a long time, and I was at a point where I wondered if it was meant to be. He’s teaching me patience, not to sweat the small stuff (unless it’s literally something small that he can choke on), and that it’s not all about me.
