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.

Presence is the greatest gift of all. I think you’ve figured out the Secret of Life.
Spot on, Lori!
This sure brought back memories. A different time. It was nice to see everyone together.
Beautiful sentiments and so true! We do obsess and worry and complain when instead, we should be happy that we have one another.
Your family looks happy.
What a great family photo .. happy and joyful … party.
