What I gave this Xmas

(inspired by Tills)

I took over a tree to a family friend that used to babysit me when I was young. She's known me since pre-school. I heard that she diddnt put up a tree this year because of her health conditions, and naturally I could not in anyway let that happen no crismas tree for her??BAH!

So off I went throwing a pan of triple chocolate brownies covered in white chocolate in the oven and I threw a tree in the truck that I had replaced, (ya a fake tree) covered in crystal round opalescent lights. I grabbed a spool of gold sparkle tulle, a warm pashmina scarf wrapped up for a present, and the brownies. Off I went to her house. HO Ho Ho..believe me I put the Ho in Ho Ho Ho.

Anyways, when I arrived she opened the door with her oxygen tubes attatched and a big smile and hug. The tree was assembled and glowing in no time. I took out the spool of gold tulle and began to wind it inbetween the branches from the top to the bottom, making it glitter and glow.

All the while I strung the tulle, she would talk to me about how beautiful I looked as a child in my matching pigtails and how proud she was to take me out in public as the people would just stare at me. I realized how much I affected her in her life thru the years, and a warm feeling came over me as I kept stringing the tulle. My aches and pains faded away. A smile emerged on my face.

She gasped when it was all done and said it was the nicest tree shes ever had. I reached for her present and put it under the tree. The expression of amazement love and appreciation said it all to me, and her greatest gift she gave me.

Thats what the Christmas Spirit is all about
