The Best Christmas Gift is Time
Our time is the best gift we can give to our friends and family this Christmas.
Nobody knows how much time we have on Earth — nobody knows when our time will end.
We all have friends and loved ones who were claimed way too early.
Hopefully, you are blessed, as my family has been, to have loved ones who have lived long and fruitful lives.
Such family members have an abundance of wisdom to share — wisdom cultivated over time.
I particularly enjoy the pearls of humorous wisdom my 88-year-old father has shared:
“Getting old ain’t for cowards!”
“At my age, never buy green bananas.”
“When life serves you a lemon, make lemonade — but crack open a Pabst Blue Ribbon first.”
My mother has long been a source of positive energy, hope and inspiration. She is forever forging ahead, forever looking for a silver lining.
