The Christmas Gift I Never Forgot...What Was Yours?
The holidays always bring back wonderful memories for me. Besides the family dinners, Christmas lights, and the cheerful mood everyone is in, there are also gifts that I remember.
The Christmas gift that has always been in my heart is one I received when I was living in my first apartment.
This was in Houston, my hometown, and I’d met a good group of people who lived there. We went to dinner together and played water volleyball every weekend. In fact, I’m still friends with many of them.
One evening there was a knock at the door. When I opened it, there stood the mother of one of my apartment friends.
Mrs. H. smiled and said….
Merry Christmas, Kathy. I thought you might like these.
In her hand was a plate of all kinds of homemade Christmas cookies. You can’t buy these. I wanted to cry. There must have been 3 or 4 dozen and each one was special.
I’ve had jewelry and tech stuff, clothing and purses, and while they were all treasured, this plate of cookies was one of the most cherished gifts I’d ever received because it was given from the heart.
