I often bring aboard a small gift for the crews and tonight, I was chagrined to find myself reacting badly to the reactions of the crew. The other crew members did not thank me for the gift and I found myself getting upset about that, and gee, wow, how very off the mark I was being! I had to recall that a gift is a gift, it is not given with any expectations in return. I had gotten so used to thanks etc that I had forgotten the basics, to give freely without requiring anything in return. I have become a DYKWIA type..... arggh!
