Everyone likes to receive gifts. It makes you feel good to know that others thought enough about you to go to the time, trouble, and expense to get a gift.

And as good as it feels to receive a gift, it feels even better to give a gift, especially when it is not expected by the recipient.

It doesn't have to be an expensive gift as long as it is done with feelings and it shows that you put effort into it.

Remember the next time you receive a gift that it is more than just a gift - it represents the time and effort to get the gift. It also means that they care about you.

So make someone's day and give them a gift just because you care about them.

If you care, others will care. And the more you care the more others will care. And the more others care, the more you care ...

In a way, awards like badges of rank are a gift - a gift to yourself. You "give" the effort to complete the requirements and in return, you receive the award or recognition.

So, care enough about yourself to give yourself a gift by earning an award or recognition.
