The Gift of Time

It hard to believe that it is once again the time of year when the malls are decked out for Christmas madness.
The race is on as people rush about in search of the perfect gift.

But what is the ideal gift? The one that doesn't disappoint, that won't be exchanged, that won't be tucked into a closet or be re gifted?

I would say its the gift of our time.
The time we take to share a meal, or a glass of wine. The time to reflect on the blessings in our lives.
It the time we take to smile at a stranger and wish them the best for the holiday season, the time we give to a charity.
It is the time we take to snuggle up by the fire with our special someone, or bake delicious cookies with our children.




Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
