When we exchange gifts, we share ourselves – our time, our energy, our money, and our love. When we make our gifts, we give the best gift ever – our talent, expressed in a homemade card or cookies, cooking Christmas dinner, or building a snowman on the lawn.
We reflect back on Christmases past, and look forward to the New Year, but the best time in our lives is now.
“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.” Alice Morse Earle
As you exchange gifts this holiday season, enjoy some quiet time to celebrate the gift of today.
