Chapter 12, Page 8, Book 19


Somehow, not only at Christmas, but all the long year through, the joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you 

John Greenleaf Whittier


December 8th - give the gift of time 


The greatest gift you can give to others and yourself is time.  Embrace the gift of time and give it or receive it

Phillip Zimbardo

For me there is no better gift than time spent with my family.  They are a gift that never stops giving.to me.  Time is the perfect gift.  This year my family is giving their time and effort into making this a family Christmas. All of my family will be together in one place to celebrate Christmas

There are times too that  sometimes what a person could really use is a simple as some quality time.  By gifting a few hours of an errand or personal  assistant service, you can give them time to do the tasks an their plate. Each hour gifted is not jus an hour saved from chores , bot an hour gained  for the one thing they want to pursue. which can positively influence their happiness and decrease their stress level. 

Times is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it.  You cn make more money, but you can’t make more time.  When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of you life tht you’ll never get back.  That is why the gratest gift you can give isomeone us your time.  


My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.  Relationships take time and effort, and best way to spell love is T-I-M-E.

Rick Warren

Family is what brings me JOY, and I'm thankful for the time I have with them.

I'm finding this particularly meaningful. In my younger days I couldn't understand why my mother would say, all she wanted for birthday/Christmas, etc. was me to come down and spend time with her. NOW I totally 'get' it.
SO happy for you, Ma. Don't you just want to SQUEAL? :)

I'm in total agreement. The most important thing I can GET and GIVE is time. Nothing takes the place of those moments spent together. xo Diana

So true. I remember who was around the table at holidays and rarely remember what was under the tree. The memories of time shared are the best!
