Holidailies Dec. 6: What is the best gift you have ever given?


It's been many years, but a friend of mine was having a very difficult time at Christmas. Unemployed, alone, broke and depressed, she was going to do her best to sleep through Christmas.

Instead she woke up Christmas morning to find a small tree, gifts and a special meal waiting for her. She probably could guess how it happened, but she never asked and I never told her. I don't known if it's the best gift I ever gave, but it's the one I feel best about.


25 Days of Christmas blogging asks what is my favorite tree ornament. In fact, the ornament is not mine. When my first child was born, she received a tiny baby in a tiny basket with a tiny pink blanket. Though that ornament decorated our tree for more than 20 years, it went off with her when she had her own home. I don't think I have a photo of it.
