Thankfulness for gifts even if they're cheap or not what you want...
I had a flashback of something that happened with my mothers mother when I was really young, like 8 maybe.
She gave me a present all wrapped up so nicely. When I opened it is was a baby doll and my mom knew it was from the dollar store.
Anyway, when she leaves, my mom cops this attitude about how cheap the present is and how could she get me a baby doll because I'm into barbies and big girl things. Not some cheap baby from the dollar store that was for 2 yr olds.
Well the woman, I have a hard time saying grandma bc she was barely In my life, she was very poor but her heart was in the right place and I was actually proud to get a gift from her.
My mom went so nuts that I threw the doll away lol.
I wish that my mom would have taught me a lesson I hope to teach my own children. Be gracious for any and every present.
My whole life growing up presents were so hard and I was so bad at receiving and I think it's all from that day. Lol
