    I’ve got so many years to think through. One of my favorites was from a close friend who did crafts. She handmade a special Christmas angel from stiffened lace doilies with red hair especially for me.

    The best present I received was the safe birth of my son. It was touch and go for a while but he pulled through. No money or object could ever replace him.

    Of course my favorite gift was the puppy that my parent give me in 2014. They pretend to go to my neiburg to say Merry Christmas and they forced me to go with them… Wow, they had put a big bow around his neck. It was the first time I cry when I receive a gift!
