Sometimes our wishes come true, but not exactly as we had hoped. The Perfect Gift presents us with the desire to make wishes come true, and the surprise one might feel when they finally do. It suggests that we find joy in moments of intimacy and collaboration:
To live life as it is at all times. Not to dream of a faraway happiness, nor dream of life as it will be or once was, but to live the happiness and pleasure of life that is within reach, realistic, and tangible.
[Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz, From Childhood to Old Age – The Inner Aspect of Education, Reshafim, 1957 (Hebrew)]
