The best gift you have ever received
Guess Im feeling a little melancholy today but two things came to my mind. The first was a call from my Dad on my birthday 25 years ago. My mother had Alzheimer's at the time and was not in good shape. When I answered the phone my Dad handed the phone to my Mom and she sang Happy Birthday to me. I can still hear her voice (Im tearing up) and will til the day I die.
Next was about 8 years ago and my youngest daughter was living in a sober living house about an hour away from me. I went to take her out for the day and when I got there she handed me a little bag. Inside was a shortbread cookie that she had bought for me. It only cost a dollar (Panera) but she lived on so very little that it felt like a million dollar gift to me. Ok----more tears.
What unforgetable gifts have you received?
