The greatest thing I have ever been given

I could write down a ton of material gifts people have given me. But what do they really mean? Sure getting gifts is nice and exciting, but at the end of the day I value far greater things that people have given to me. 

I suppose when I read the subject being: something someone gave to you, I came up with lots of things that have been given to me over the years. A couple of things that stood out to me where things my family have given to me in particular the morals and values they have installed in me growing up. 

  1. Always say please and thank you, no matter what.
  2. Never assume you're more important than anyone else, we are all equal here. 
  3. You have to work to get the rewards. If you want something you have to earn it. 
  4. Don't judge a book by its cover. People really can surprise you sometimes.
  5. Accept peoples differences, we won't all agree on the same things but that's okay. 
I am thankful I was raised with those values that I will continue into my adulthood.

However, I was given the gift of a cat. I had grown up with a dog and never experienced owning a cat until one snowy, cold December day who should arrive but ElJay. He was given to us to be loved and cherished in a new home. Six years later, my love of cats has grown with the addition of Scrappy and they have both made a wonderful impact on my life.

What is something someone has given you that you want to show gratitude for?
