MONI MEZA, Pasco
This season I am not buying gifts for my children. Why not? What is wrong with me, you wonder?
You see, I saw this ad saying, "I need name brand clothes," and I thought, Really? Am I going to die if I don't wear name-brand clothes? I am so dead. I need to buy/sell, buy/sell, hustle! Whew! Really?
Wow. So I have decided to give my children something much more meaningful this season.
Never miss a local story.
Love. Beautiful memories of time spent with your family is a gift that can't be broken, stolen, lost or bought. And it is something only you have the power to give.
Of course, easy for me to say, right? Because my husband and I are both orphans, we don't have any in-laws to entertain. We get to focus all of our time on our little angels.
Believe me, our teens would rather we didn't.
The most important things in life, like love, health, inner beauty and life itself, are things that can't be bought or sold.
Now don't get me wrong. I like money. When I have enough, I am going to get the best friends money can buy.
Keep laughing, and have a great season!
