Christmas is around the corner and all I can think about is the Christmas past when the family was all together and we would have a few gifts to pass out and a lot of fruit, candy canes, and the food out was of this world, because it was all made from scratch. You didn’t get the finest of clothes, pc, cameras and so on, but you appreciated what you got because you knew your mom and dad worked so hard to get you these items with small wages and you would more than likely not get anything else till the next Christmas. But what it all amounted too was that big smile on their faces when they handed you the gift of love. I now return that gift to my mom whom is in the nursing home with a smile and I love you and she does the same back so, if you have elderly folks for Christmas- remember the Christmas past.
