The Gift of Time for Father’s Day

The gift of time is the best gift that money can’t buy.  Now that my sons are older with busy lives of their own, when holidays like Mother’s day, Father’s day and our birthdays roll around, I suggest gifts of their time instead of materialistic things purchased from stores.

For example, yesterday for Father’s Day, my sons picked up and delivered a truck load of cedar trees to our cottage.  Their dad had been talking about filling in our lot line there with cedars to increase our privacy.

After the work was done, it was time for relaxation and a BBQ before the boys had to head back to the city.

I suspect as we parents get older and our sons have families of their own with increased responsibilities and limited spare time, these gifts of time will be even more meaningful…
