What has been the greatest gift you've ever received?

A year ago I got the Rattle and Hum CD from my bf. It was so great because I couldn't find it on any store, so he went to the US and bought it to me for Xmas.

2. my portrait made by my girlfriend from a picture

3. would be a signed copy of Steve Waugh's book about the 2001 aussie tour of India and England

Love! My friend once had wrapping paper that had "the greatest gift is love" written all over it.

As far as material gifts, I really don't know.

My parents. I'm adopted, so my birth mother gave me the opportunity to have a life she couldn't have given me with the two most wonderful people I know.

Good friends.

Having been surrounded by enormous amounts of love my entire life.

As for material things, it's a three-way tie:

My trips to Africa/England from my parents.

A CD of songs that really explain who I am in a way few can understand.

A diamond star necklace. Stars are my personal totem.

My musical talent.

A friendship that has lasted for nearly half of my life, despite distance, confusion and hurt.

The hearts that I've bonded with, even if only briefly and even if I've lost touch with them.

My mother given less than 24 hours to live due to a stroke.

That was 8 years ago.

And she is living a productive life as if nothing had happened (except minor physical limitations)

Can't ask for a greater gift than that.
