It is the time and energy you give to your children.
It is the moments poured from your soul and into their little hearts. It is something that money can never replace and gifts can never satisfy.
It is you, dear mother.
It is those mornings you sit with your child as you read together from books. It is those afternoons spent stirring a batch of cookies. It is the evenings spent embracing them, showering them with kisses.
It is your investment of time.
It is precious, invaluable. Just like your children... for they are your gems.
They are the only treasure that you may take with you to heaven.
Forego the fancy toys and the glittering electronics… It is the memories spent with you that will always be cherished.
Won't you wrap yourself up these next few years in a box with pretty string and offer yourself to your family?
Your time, dear mother, is the best gift that you can ever give.
"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
making the best use of the time…"
~ Ephesians 5:15-16
