Ever read the little card on your birthday or Christmas gift, it is addressed to you with love from someone. Essentially you are given the gift because the giver treasure you in their lives and a gift you give exemplifies your love or intent for a person.
When we give we give from our hearts, we do not hold back, we reveal our love for the ones we love. In other words, a heartfelt aspiration to show the evidence of your love.
Many a time during Christmas we are so excited, not about the fact that we will receive physical goods, but rather we are anxious to see how others feel about us. Sometimes we put a lot of effort into our giving and we are extremely selective in what we give.
