Precious Presence


Forget about the shopping–
give a hug, a flower, a smile,
your time.
We surround ourselves with things,
but none of it can come with us
when we leave this world.
How do you want to be remembered?
We can be distracted
in pursuit of things,
or we can be here,
open heart, open eyes,
present for our loved ones.
Sit with your beloveds,
be still and quiet,
look at them, see them,
really listen.
Your loving presence
is the most precious of presents.

  1. My mantra is that my kids need my time more than my money. It’s a test I use to weigh every career decision. More money that also equals less time with my kids is not an equation that works out the way I want. Thanks Yoga Mom!
