The greatest gift i have ever receive is the flowers and chocolates that was given by my husband to me on valentines. He is still my boyfriend that time and we are a long distance relationship when i receive a call from the flower shop that someone wants to give me flowers and chocolotes. At firs I really don't have an idea who gave it to me and i thought maybe i have a secret admirer here. Who would have thought it came from my boyfriend? He is thousand miles away from me. When i asked the lady who sent it to me, I got really shocked when she told me it came from him. YOu know what i felt that time? Oh my! I feel like i'm the most beautiful girl in the world. I then called him and thank him for surprising me. How about you? What's the greatest gift you have ever receive? Where it came from? What did you feel the moment you receive it?

i think the greatest thing that i have been given is my life to me nothing else can be as good as that and nothing can replace it. it is one gift that is very precious not only to me but to everyone. and just think if this gift would not be given to us then from where would these other gifts would have come from. i would never be able to pay back the worth of this gift to him who has given me this. and also when the time will come i will not hesitate to give it back to god.

I agree with you. Our life is one of the greatest gifts God has given to us. I think the best thing you could pay back to Him is just being a good person and God would be very happy with that.

Hi ya aisaellis22 Firstly I would have to say my 3 kids, but that goes without saying. I had, had a few tough years in my marriage and once out of it my mum bought me a microlighting flight for birthday after the marriage broke up. It was great and would love to take it up as a hobby but it would be very expensive!

Oh i'm sorry to hear about your marriage. But probably you are happily married right? I don't know anything about that ,microlighting. Why is it so expensive? Is it a game?

Me microlighting - microlighting
Don't be sorry it's ok, honest. Microlighting is like a small aeroplane, well tiny aeroplane actually. I's like paragliding but with an engine. I will find a picture for you so can see!!

My son. God knows that my son can make me the happiest person in this world. Though I know that a lot of sacrifices, responsibilities and difficulties comes with this gift, I still consider my little angel the very best thing that ever happened in my life. God has given me someone who'll take care of me for the rest of my life. I may not get the love and care that I wanted from the men in this world but I am sure my son will never forsake nor abandon me.

there's no other greatest gift than having a son or child of our own. I don't have it yet, but I heard how the newly parents felt the moment they saw their baby.

Just to say no not as such great gift I have received in my life. If I consider deeply I must say my son in the greatest gift for me. And nothing else I wish. I am quite happy and contended.

Hi Aisa,You are lucky person. If I were a long distance relation as you, I could send & receive gift.Though I received & sent a good number of gift. My favorite gift is flower & pen.So I like to received flower and pen as gift. But when sent a gift to other, I try to understand what S/he like or dislike.

i would have to say the greatest gift i've received was from my boyfriend this past november for my birthday. he had surprised me with a trip to Cuba for the 2 of us and he even called my work and got the time off for me without me knowing about it. we've been together for 3 years and we've already spoken about marriage and moving out together and kids so i know in my heart that he's definitely the one honestly, he's the best thing that has ever come into my life

The Greatest gift I have ever recieved in my entire life is the coming of this special person in my life ... 10 months and 9 days ago ... i can say it's the greatest gift because despite of the tough and rough times that i have encountered in my life, he was there to pick me up and accepted me of who and what i am ... though shall i say that i have been really praying of someone like him to come into my life ... i am glad that he did ... now though we encounter some difficulty with the long distance relationship that we have had but still we try to fix things out to overcome these kind of trial ...

I've got my first suitor when I was in Grade 5. Probably because I represented our class in United Nations, somebody got interested in me. I was only 11. I know for sure that it's just an admiration and not really something to take seriously. Then I've got another when I just entered First Year High School. I was 12. For sure I feel too young to enter into a relationship. Then when I was in 3rd yr, I prayed to God. I said that I felt that I am ready to have a relationship. I told Him that if ever I would have a boyfriend, I want that person to be my husband. So, I someone courted me. I had my first boyfriend at age 15. He was my boyfriend for 12 yrs. and my husband for 4 yrs and 10 months. God's greatest gift to me -- my laughter, my lover, my life -- my HUSBAND.

I agree with you jenisky..I guess a child of our own would be the best gift of God to us. You're so lucky to have them. They are blessings to you.. Wow! A ring would be so sweet and a bracelet would be so exensive..lol Anyway, I looked up to your discussions to respond but I was sad when I found out that I responded to your discussions..thank you so much for your responses here..

My student gave me a TV set as a wedding present. I thought it was the greatest of all. I never forget this although I haven't seen her for many years. I don't know why she gave me such an expensive present. She might have been thankful to me or perhaps she was just kind-hearted to every one she knew.
