This pretty little mug was a gift from a sweet friend. As a matter of fact, I have received quite a few unexpected gifts lately. Some people just have a knack for gift giving. That special insight that helps them know exactly what will fill up someones love cup. 
I think it would be accurate to say I was a little spoiled when I was young. I got my way most of the time, and when I didn't I would put up the biggest fuss. I feel bad looking back now and seeing how selfish I was. How ungrateful. I expected the world yet gave nothing back in return. My poor parents. While they were just trying to show love in practical ways, I totally disregarded it all as something I deserved. I wish I could say I grew out of this at a young age but I can't. I think in many ways that selfish little girl still lives in me. The good thing is that I know what drives that out of me.
I am so thankful for all I have been blessed with. The generosity I have been shown is driving me to be more grateful, thoughtful, and giving. It is so true that it is better to give than to receive..

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want
Proverbs 11:24 

Apples of Gold
