Wow! Fascinating reading! I should have guessed just how BIG this day was with all the stock on display.
I have never gotten into the whole 'gift-giving' scenario. Husby's love language is giving and it's rather hard on him. But he's learned, instead, to give me the acts of service that are my love language. And chocolates... (which he then eats!) ;)


What a nice idea to give a gift of service. I think more people should try it.
