A Christmas Memory

One of my fondest Christmas memories is from my childhood. Christmas in our house was simple and focused on  family and Jesus. It was the simple things like home made tree decorations and sugar cookies that made the holiday special.

I remember one Christmas Eve when I was 1o or 11 we were allowed to open 1 present. We were all excited when we opened up the packages and found hand sewn night gowns with matching bed caps, made especially for us by our grandma. Each was different and in some way matched the personality of the receiver. While the gift was not extravagant it was given with love and received with much joy.

I don’t remember any other gift that I got that year. I only remember the home made  gift from Grandma.

What special gift do you remember from your childhood?
