The older I get the more I realise that Christmas is not all about what you give or get, but about being there with your family. This was compounded with a health scare and even more when my mum died at Christmas four years ago. So now MadDad and I focus on our presence rather than the presents. Growing up my dad always told us the following rules and this is something we have tried to instill in our children.
I am joining many other very talented bloggers in a 21 Days of Gratitude series. Each day for from Nov. 1-21, each of us will be sharing an image with a quote related to gratitude. The purpose of this series is to inspire you to find joy in every moment of every day. This is even more appropriate for me as will be soon experiencing the joys of Florida and my first taste of thanksgiving in the US. “The happiest people do not have the best of everything they make the best of everything”
