Remember to Accept

I observed a friend today, being offered a small gift.  She was delighted to receive it.  Her first thought after that feeling of gratitude, was, "I must get a gift for her in return."
I chimed in and suggested she leave it at "Thank you" and continue with simply graciously accepting, rather than immediately seeking to re-pay. 
Accepting with grace.  It's simple.  But not always easy.  Accepting without repaying directly is a stretch that allows us to stay in the flow of giving and receiving with ease.
