Here are the fill-in-the-blanks:
1. I have a hard time finding a gift for __________________.
2. I have no problem finding a gift for __________________.
3. One of the best gifts I ever gave was _________________.
4. One of the best gifts I ever received was ______________.

Here are my responses:
I have a hard time finding a gift for the kids. I am never sure what they want that we can afford. I have always wanted to be able to give them the world. It just hasn’t ever worked out quite that way.

I have no problem finding a gift for David. He loves books as much as I do. If it is a non-fiction book about business, he loves it.

One of the best gifts I ever gave was a gift that I gave to David on our first Valentine’s Day together, way back in 1982.

One of the best gifts I ever received was a Newspapers.com subscription! I have found so much information on our families through these old newspaper articles, like there was a duel in which a young man in David’s family died. Also, I found out that an insurance company tried to rip off one of my 2nd great-grandfathers. Apparently, his house burned down and he died at some point soon after the fire. I am not sure if the fire caused his death or not. I found an article where his widow, my 2nd great-grandmother, was awarded more money by the court. I have yet to find the article about the fire itself.

    That was probably the greatest gift you could have given a dufus like me. I had no idea at the time that sundresses were not very practical for Valentine’s Day. Thank you for everything you do for me. Zing! Zing!
