Black Friday Thoughts : What Shall We Give The Children


What shall we give the children?
Christmas is almost here.
Toys and games and playthings,
as we do every year?
What shall will give the children?
Yes, for the magic of Toyland
is part of the yuletide lore.
to gladden the heart of childhood,
But I shall give something more,
a more sympathetic ear,
a little more time for laughter,
or tenderly dry a tear...
I shall take time to teach them
the joy of doing some task.
I'll try to find some time to answer
more of the questions they ask.
and take long walks in the sun.
Time for a bedtime story
after the day is done.
I shall give these to my children,
weaving a closer tie,
knitting our lives together,
with gifts that  money can't buy.

The gifts that money can't buy will be remembered forever and passed down to their kids. Excellent.

Have a fabulous day and weekend honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Sometimes the best gifts are not what money buys.

I love the poster "You're not rich until you have something money can't buy." How true this is!! Here's hoping that your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as mine and Pogo's was. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
