It’s December, a time for holiday cheer and gift giving.
A few years ago, my aunt was very excited about a holiday gift she was going to give to my daughter. My aunt had debated between a necklace and a bracelet of a popular teen brand, but then found a watch made by the popular brand on the clearance rack. It was almost a steal and very practical, thought my aunt—jewelry and a time piece in one!
What happened? The watch was returned. Why? In the words of my daughter, “Why do I need a watch to tell time? I always have my cell phone with me to tell me what time it is.”
Fast forward to today. Guess what? She’s about to graduate college and now wears a watch. Why? In her words, “I’ve realized that looking at your cell phone all the time is rude.” As we go through life, we often learn things that encourage us to take a different perspective on our gifts.
