“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things—help and comfort and laughter—and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess
It’s hard for me to believe tomorrow is the first of December, 2018.
Which means Christmas will now be counted in “days away ” and shopping begins to inch toward “frenzy” mode.
If there is one thing I’ve learned this year is how quickly things change. Which, for me, means I need to make a few changes.
This year instead of buying I’m going to find ways to spend more quality time with those important to me. Honestly, I don’t know of anyone who need more “stuff.” I do believe there are many of us who need a few more minutes of quality time spent with loved ones.
So…I’m going to make that happen.
The cost to me = zero.
The return value = priceless.
“You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
