Your children need your presence more than your presents. ~ Jesse Jackson
It’s 11: 52 PM on day 126 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no donations were made to my campaign today but on the plus side my friends, @sapphire100 (Emma) and @laura_FilanFan (Laura) have agreed to organize a fundraiser for my campaign 🙂 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV and exercise for 10 minutes.
Today as I spent time playing with my brother – wrestling, tickling, etc – I saw the joy on his face and realized that children, just like the rest of us want to know that they are worth somebody’s time. Do you buy your kids presents to make up for your lack of presence? 🙂
