The Most Precious Gift Of All

I love to give gifts and get them too! The older I get, the more I reflect on the little things that cost very little or nothing at all. Spending time with my family and friends playing games, talking or enjoying the beauty of nature together are memories worth millions to me. At Christmas time and the coming of a new year I look back and see just how lucky I am. We all reflect on our lives this time of year. (And on our birthdays.) Some of us will make goals to do things different and or better than we've done this last year. No matter your faith, or religious belief there is more we can can do to help one another. A kind word, and smile can change the world. I share this picture with you, with the hope you will remember and understand the most precious gift of all was given because of love. May God's choicest blessing be given to you and your loved ones for years to come. Merry Christmas my blog friend.

Well said, David. With all the hustle and bustle of the season, coupled with all the uncertainty in the world, it's even more important to reflect upon our blessings. Peace to you. Peace to our blog friends. Merry Christmas. I can't believe it's only 11 days away!

Wise words from a wise man. This was a nice reminder of the true meaning of this season and a good reminder to spread the gratitude through out the whole year.

I wish you and your family an amazing 2010!

Hi David,
I was in buying the Gary Fong Lightsphere today and you gave me the card for Mark's blog and so I found yours. Some fun images on your blog. I used the same statue for my Christmas wish for everyone, but in a very different way. You may want to take a look at it here.

Nice blog, I'll be back to visit again.
