I found this on youtube by chance and I think it shows exactly what this season is about. I’m absolutely glad for the grandpa, but what touched my heart deeply was the non-stop giggling of joy of the people around him watching his emotion. Don’t get me wrong! I LOVE RECEIVING GIFTS, MANY GIFTS! I love it, love it! But what I really enjoy is that warmth in the heart that comes from the experience of giving, or like in this case watching somebody getting something they’ll really cherished.
This year, my sister could finally buy a tablet for my niece for Christmas. She left it to the end, so my niece opened all the other modest gifts first and she was quite happy with them, but when she discovered the tablet she couldn’t stop crying out of joy. Being part of that moment was the best present I’ve ever had. So I hope you get a moment to watch the video again and be part of the marvellous experience of sharing happiness.
