Holidays and the gift of giving

This holiday season why not talk to your children about the true gifts– that of giving. In our family we have been talking about, “who can can we make bread for this year?”, “who can we give hugs to this year?”  My 8 year old has decided that she is going to draw family portraits and make frames for them and give those as gifts from the heart. “It’s very freeing being creative for no other reason other than you freewheel and fill time.”

It is very easy to get caught up in the buying of things– it happens to the best of us. But in this very busy time- let family be of the most important. Discuss gratitude and make it a daily point to be thankful.


Wishing you all a joyous holiday!
