His Gift

I got all my Christmas shopping done early this year. Well all except the junk gifts. You know, all that assorted value-priced crap we give to those distant relatives or acquaintances we barely know. But I’m going to wait until the last minute before I hit the mall again — usually the stores put all that stuff on the clearance shelf just before the dumpster. There are bargains to be found, and my aunt’s silver tin of stale Christmas cookies is going to be half-off this year. It’s the thought that counts.

I almost forgot. I have another gift yet to buy. My friend’s birthday is on Christmas day also. That must really be rough for him. Sometimes he only gets one gift for both, but usually one of those junk gifts packaged along with the real present for Christmas.

Most of the time, though, he doesn’t get anything at all. A lot of people seem to just forget.

Thinking more about it, maybe I ought to re-think this whole giving thing and get my heart in the right place. This year, I’m going to get him something great. Something to say thank you for all the times he was there for me. Something to show how important he is in my life. Something right from my very soul to say thank you for the gifts he’s given to me.

Christ, He is going to be hard to shop for.
