What does your favorite Christmas gift say about you?

Time goes on in our lives and we progress from screaming with glee over opening an Easy Bake Oven Set, a Barbie, a toy gun or a video game, to other things. Decades beyond childhood, the Keurig and a Tempur-Pedic pillow are my two favorite Christmas gifts. 

I got to thinking about what this says about me.

At this stage of my life I value comfort over play.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not but it's just reality at this moment. I read a blog post by Michael Hyatt this week that really challenged me to embrace discomfort.  It's the last thing I wanted to hear. I've been in an uncomfortable place for quite some time trying desperately to grab on to any bit of comfort that I could find and still retain ministerial credentials. ;P I'm only half kidding there.  I have hope for 2012. Even if just a little bit on some days, I still have hope and on the days it's low, a few friends give me some that they have to spare. Lucky for me, I have some friends who are quite literally hope dealers.

I'm digressing.  Sorry.

What does your favorite Christmas gift that you received say about you?

I've always been into practical when it comes to Christmas gifts: books, clothes, my red toolbox filled with Craftsman screwdrivers, food, warm slippers and so forth. Yes, I had my fair share of games and toys, but over the years gamepieces got lost, I outgrew toys, and no one wanted to play Scrabble and Uno. As an adult, I still have the same tastes - books and clothes. My favorite gifts are the ones that I give to others; the "gifts" I receive (from this) are priceless and unmatched by anything in the physical realm.
