Maybe there’s a reason that the words “presence” and “presents” rhyme.

Being present is a gift, like the presence of a parent in a child’s life.

There’s only one now. Give the gift of your presence to your children, today. Spend the time with them now. Not tomorrow.

The gift of your presence is the best present of all.


Today’s gift of time … Was present at my daughter’s school’s open house. Was present in her life. Today.
