"Being is more important than Having and Being With is more important than Being." This is a phrase I started to say to my children when at Christmas time I'd ask them what they wanted for Christmas and they would go through the Sunday papers advertising checking what toys they'd want. I told them that they might not understand what I was saying then but would one day. They now really do understand that the only real gift you can give or get is "Being With" and this is something more gratifying in life than any other gift they could ever give me. Too much joy for words.
