I remember hearing a statement many years ago.
Gifts are wasted on the young.
I bristled when I heard those words.
I did not agree with them.
The woman who said those words was talking about appreciation.
This woman felt that young people do not understand the gifts they have been given.
Young people, in her mind, think more of the here and now and not of the future.
Gifts that are not something they can enjoy now, tend to be dismissed.
