A True Gift: Her Birthday

Sometimes the best gift you can receive for your birthday are gifts you give to those who have none. That's what Felicia Kasdan, 19, discovered when she made a birthday wish for other children to receive toys in lei of her own birthday presents since she recognized how fortunate she was already.

Some gifts are simply made to refresh another; when I create a birthday wall for my daughters, in one sense, it becomes a gift others appreciate when they can play a part in it. That's one of the ways the birthday wall has become such a special and intimate part of their birthday celebration. My youngest daughter, Hannah, shares her point of view on what The Birthday Wall means to her in my e-book, The Birthday Wall: Create a Collage to Celebrate Your Child.
