Being Present

June 14, 2012

As fathers, it is easier to “buy presents” than to “be present”.  Buying presents simply involves flashing a credit card, while being present is a combination of intentionality, focus and listening. Our kids can certainly tell the difference between the two types of presents.  While they might clamor for the cotton candy like thrill of physical presents, deep down our children yearn for the sensation of our attention and presence.  Feed your children with the lasting nourishment of your focused presence.
