Presence Not Presents 2

"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)

Father-Son Time

To make Earth sustainable, we need a simpler material lifestyle, especially in the Rich World.
Parents and grandparents tend to overload their children with presents on festive occasions, like birthdays and Christmas.
You can try a low-gift rule.
Or buy experiences rather than things.

Good long-term feelings come from presence not presents!
Children need quality and quantity time!!

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.
(From In the Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rossetti)
