Well it's my Hobbit name!

I found this quote yesterday:
The only gift is a portion of thyself.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer and philosopher (1803-1882)
It's rather apropos for this time of the year, don't you think? But I'd ammend it to say, "The best gift is a portion of thyself." When someone is really there with you, when they give of their time, when they obviously have done something for you that took a lot of thought and energy or when they have truly shared a part of who they are with you, it makes life so sweet and meaningful. And that is truly a gift.
