Not A Stuff Person


Bridget McGee 

 made a comment on one of my blog posts that hit home.  She stated she was not a 'stuff' person.

Lee and I always gave time to each other. Our gifts did not have to be on Hallmark days.

I remember getting  a Tuesday present.

Our birthdays were special but we enjoyed the entire week or month.

Notes, words  and time were the best gifts.

It did not need to be wrapped.

It needed to be from the heart and given with love.

Do not feel sorry that I did not get a wrapped gift on special occasions.

People knew not to ask what did you get for Valentine's Day or anniversaries or even birthdays.

We made each day feel like a special day...counting each one we were together.

Hope you understand that I am
