My secret name?

Well it's my Hobbit name!

May Overhill of Nobottle

I bet you'd like one, too

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.

What a great quote and so true, it's the one gift that I think we really hold back on sometimes.

Thanks for the nice comment at my blog. I am going to have to have my mom come see that I showed off her puppets. :)

This entry is so true. I love that my daughter (8) chose to make gifts this year, even though I offered to buy them for her. She knew that it was better to give of her time! yay! I also found your blog through your comment on Arleta's, and I'm so glad you did. Great blog! I'm looking forward to reading it. It looks really interesting.
