When I was in the third grade, I got fifty cents to buy Christmas presents for my brother and sister. In those days, you could buy an ice cream cone or a big candy bar for a nickel, so it was easy enough to find something of value at the dime store.
The challenge was how to get the greatest value for just a quarter and have it be something my brother or sister would really appreciate. That took a lot of shopping.
What I learned is that the greatest gifts are the ones we can share—love, life, and peace.
