the simple gift of an egg

Last last week.. i forgot when exactly, my church youth had a closing nite for the year..
It was amazing to think how the year had gone sooo quickly..
it's crazy how much u miss out.. especially because of exams and all the hecticness dat goes with it.. hahahahh...

Anyway... at the end of the nite.. we had the gift swapping thingo..
so every1 hu attend brought a gift wrapped in newspaper..
oh wait... except 1 person hu ddnt bring anythin and quickly grabbed a newspaper he found on the stage hahaahah...
*not gonna say the name xD*

We all stood in a circle and the presents got passed around.
Round and round the gifts go... some are lighter than u thought it wud be,
some heavy despite its "not-that-big" size

Finalllyyyy after a seemingly long rounds... we each got our presents...
*including the person hu ddnt bring any.. I think anyway lol*

I opened the newspaper... and... guess wat i got! an EGG!
Not just an ordinary egg.. it's called an eggling.. and when u crack the shell, water it, and leave it under the sun, it will grow into a STRAWBERRY PLANT!!!!

how KOOL is dat???!!

Anyway.. before the gift swapping and everything.. we got a message from the preacher..
He asked all of us to pass the one MOst PRECIOUS thing u have rite now to the person next to u..
I passed my wallet..
*even though it was empty hahahah*
And then he asked evry1: Do you like the gift that u received?
Most said yes.. Some said no.. including me..
lol actually i wud LUPH to receive the gift.. *i was saying it just for the fun of it lol*
Different people have diff opinions on why they don't like it..
I said that I couldn't use the shoe coz it doesn't fit me..

He then went on saying: Isn't this like what we usually do?
We often get presents from someone..
And you never think that maybe this person gave the absolute BEST thing he or she had to give to you..
It may not be useful to you or you might not like it or you may think "I wish I had gotten something else"..
But think about the person's feeling.. How would she or he feels?
What do you do if someone give you the BEST BEST thing that he or she has...
Would you reject it?
Or would you keep it?

It was short and simple.. but i never thought about this... xD

Made me feel even MORE guilltier coz it reminds me of wat i did lol..
Once, I got this naruto classbook from my friend.. she knew that i LUPHED naruto..
However, i gave it to my other friend coz i tot I wouldn't use it and i cbb to ask ppl to write lol... *so stupid of me*
I didn't tell her that i "gave it away".
Anyway the worst thing is when one day, this other friend asked my friend (the one hu gave the classbook to me) to fill in her new classbook...
OMG.... i feel so bad lol......... sorryyy >.< Anyway... in this case.. I LUPH my present.. so I have nothing to worry about hahahahah...

the one I got was like this but pink with strawberry picture :)
