The Present of Presence

The holiday have their own special level of stress.  Not only is work busier than at any other time of the year, but seasonal obligations like travel, presents, parties, and other seasonal chores all add up to a mix that spreads one too thin.  Likewise, the evolution of technology has created an "always on" culture that shows no signs of abating.  As such, attention spans are quickly broken, and distractions easily accepted.

I'll bet if you asked the people that really love you what they want for Christmas, they'd answer one thing: time with you.  Not with you in front of a TV, or behind an iPhone, but just with you.

Simple gift, and since you were worried about that Christmas list anyway...
