31 days of precious presents in December

Savor is a great word. To me, savor means to enjoy to the maximum.

To savor each day in December as Christmas is pure delight for me. I cannot imagine not having a Christmas.

12 years ago the family was gifted with a precious present; the birth of Isabella Alexis Crowell Ferch. (Check out Bella as a 3-year-old reciting poetry – HBO gifted the five Ferch’s with an all expense trip to NY to make a poetry movie for kids.)

Isabella was a surprise. They make the best precious presents. Life just wouldn’t be the same without our Bella.

Precious Presents come in all shapes, sizes, forms, and value.

The best precious gifts cost nothing:

  • A smile from a passerby.
  • A glass of cold water.
  • A nap in the afternoon.
  • Fallen snow.
  • A word of encouragement.
  • Doing a kind act.
  • Silence.
  • Praying a Psalm.
  • A conversation of mutual dialog.
  • A walk or jog.
  • Decorating for Christmas.
  • Laughing.
  • Taking a casual drive in the car.
  • Singing.

With all the simple kinds of precious pleasures, it baffles me when I hear statements like, “I’m bored” or “There is nothing to do.”

Today is full of precious presents if we believe they are precious.  

For me, it is my 6th day of Christmas. I have 24 more precious Christmas presents to celebrate.  

Please join me. Make today a precious present.
