Macon-Bibb County broke ground in mid-November for improvements at the East Macon Recreation Center (3326 Ocmulgee East Boulevard). This event marked the beginning of the first phase of improvements, which includes sidewalks, a new t-ball field, a rebuilt concession stands, new fencing, and upgrades to the storm drainage system and the scoring boxes.

The Perfect Christmas Gift: Presence over Presents

The Perfect Christmas Gift: Presence over Presents

What’s on your Christmas gift list this year? Lots of toys, clothes, other assorted stuff? In 10 years do you think you or your family will remember what gifts you received or gave in 2015? Probably not. I believe you need to give presence instead of presents.

I think the most perfect Christmas gift that we can give is the gift of time, more specifically the gift of our presence. This is the gift we will remember for years to come. For our 20th wedding anniversary my husband and I decided to take our children on a European vacation to Paris, Florence and Rome. It was a wonderful trip filled with memories that we all will cherish for the rest of our lives. If my husband had given me a piece of jewelry or some other material gift for that anniversary, I’m quite positive that it wouldn’t have been as memorable as that trip.
