Quote of the week

“Rings and jewels are not gifts but apologies for gifts. The only true gift is a portion of yourself.” 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hmmm…a little harsh, perhaps?  I certainly wouldn’t object, or consider it a “non gift”, if somebody gave me a ring or necklace!  But I can relate to the idea that fancy, costly gifts with no real thought behind them, other than to impress the recipient, are not really very good gifts at all.
