When I think of the many gifts I’ve been blessed with over the years by my children, these are the ones that come most to mind and have been the most treasured. Over the years, my friends will say that the gifts of time and heart stay with them, as well, often longer than the store-purchased goods that retailers push us to buy.
Let’s remind our children that their presence (when possible) and heartfelt creations make for the best presents!
My favorite Five!
- Time spent together having fun
- A prepared meal
- A CD or playlist compiled of some favorite music
- Framed photos of us together and now the grand kids
- Cards with heartfelt messages (I still have them)
And when I think of mothers, I think of all the women who “mother” or “nurture” in some capacity. These can be aunts, sisters, grandmothers, godmothers, teachers, doctors, nurses, neighbors and friends with and without their own children. We are a “village” after all, aren’t we?
Let us celebrate the unique and diverse ways in which all women care nurture and lift us up, young and older, each and every day. Thank you to all you “mothers” out there and wishing you special time to receive the gratitude we send your way!
Many thanks and Blessings for your presence in our lives!
