Do you know the feeling when you sacrifice something to give someone special a gift in return?

That saying is shown in the Gift of the Magi by William Sydney Porter which tells about a couple who sacrificed their most prized possession to give the other a gift in return because it was Christmas. The wife sold her precious hair for money to buy a chain for her husband. The husband in return, gave a turquoise comb and sold his watch to buy it. When exchanged gifts, they were both surprised because the use of their gifts were futile :>. But in the end, they still appreciated it and celebrated Christmas happily.

 

 

This happens in real life too because we sacrifice in order to give. We sacrifice time, work and effort in exchange for the gratitude that we will receive. :>
