      Truth! I’ve closely observed many with all sorts of expensive toys, gadgets, cars….who go on exotic vacations…often they seem so empty and always chasing after something that will never be achieved.

        I may have told you this before Miro, If I have then I apologise in advance..
        When my children were very small, we had all on just scraping by. We didnt have any money to buy toys or anything much that year when Christmas came around..
        The Universe provided me with a Large Chicken/Capon that I won in a small raffle I entered in my Son’s nursery school.. So Christmas dinner was taken care of LOL as we grew our own veggies πŸ™‚
        But in the weeks prior to Christmas I had secretly at night been making my Son a Daughter their Christmas gifts..
        My Son I made a Fort out of a cardboard box, complete with turrets draw-bridge and slit windows with platforms etc.. I had some Brick patterned wall paper left over from decorating several years previously which when I pasted onto the box made it look very Castle like..
        My only expense was that I bought several plastic bags of mediaeval soldiers with sprears bows and arrows, and on horse back.. My son was ages 7
        My daughter I made a dolls house complete with stairs windows curtains bedding etc which I made from scraps of fabric as I used to made my daughter all her dresses.. She was 5.. The only expense I bought her a look-a-like Barbie doll, not the real one as they were too expensive at the time.. But I made this little doll more outfits and little bags using my sewing machine skills…

        Out of all the Christmas toys through out both their childhood lives when they visit My son now a Dad himself, Remembers best the toy fort and my daughter her dolls house.

        The secret to Happiness is never Money.. I poured a lot of Love into those items.. and they played with them until they dropped to pieces…

        We don’t need gadgets…. and often those who buy their children everything money can buy.. fail to give them the one thing they need the most.. And that is their time and their Love…

        Many thanks Miro for all your beautiful responses to my comments… Enjoy a wonderful fulfilling week ahead…

    Agreed wholeheartedly, Sue. Money is a shortcut that people use to save time and effort when trying to show love. As of late I’ve been writing poems for the birthdays of those close to me, and judging by the tears shed by the recipient, I’d say they hit the heart more than any trinket or gadget could have. πŸ™‚
