Let's take the example of my one wealthy brother. He has never sent me a birthday card, a holiday card, or for that matter even a postcard. I send him a birthday card every year, holidays cards, gifts. So what I would really like to do is send him a note saying he is a self-centered jerk. Sigh. But that isn't me. He just had a minor operation and I sent him a get well card. But really I hope that's the end of it. Starting in the new year I am not sending him a darn thing.

Okay...let's take the example of another brother. I have a brother who does not have very much in the way of money and he is always sending me little gifts. Sometimes it is just something simple like a beautiful shell he found on the beach, or a funny postcard. So this brother deserves to be thanked...and I do it...often. He is a good artist and sometimes he will send me a little watercolor. He is so thoughtful. He is proof that even when you have very little in the way of material can be generous. This brother has the heart of a king.

No more one way Xmas gifts and cards for me. I am so over it.
