The spirit of giving becomes “all about me.”
Does anyone realize how lucky they may be?
It’s a blessed day for loved ones to share,
and take the time to show they care.
Yet still so many complain,
about the stress and family strain.
I am just the opposite.
Surrounded by family is my benefit.
Family, friends, neighbors, come one and all
It’s your presence, not presents, for which I call.
