Perhaps the most enduring gifts
from Christmas-tide festivities
are not the items bought in shops
but things that make prized memories.
From moments filled with laughter at
some zany fun activity
to having simply helped someone
through using our proclivity.
Your Grandma will delight in any
art or craftwork made by you.
Our love and personality are
captured in the things we do.
Our presence time and talents shared
are valued gifts both rich and wise.
They’re cherished in fond memories
much more than any merchandise.
It is always wonderful to receive a valued gift – especially at Christmas. Something made with care from a family member is a grandmother’s treasure. But sometimes we are bought things we don’t really need or want, then get in a bother about what to do with them. Would you pass those kinds of gifts to someone who might enjoy them more?
