Season of Giving
First I wanted to announce one more time that Valerie in Germany won my first contest. Please email me at writer madison scott (AT) yahoo (DOT) com
I want to talk about gifts today. Kids are making their lists for Santa. Husbands and wives are picking out that special something for one another. I am not a big shopper, but I LOVE Christmas shopping. I can't help but imagine the look on my girls faces when they open them. The thank you kiss from my husband or the tears from the grandparents (I'm known for sentimental grandparent gifts, lol).
We're having a struggle in the house this year because my oldest wants a puppy. Like BAD. My hubby and I just aren't on board with it right now. It's a big responsibility and we're not sure we're ready yet. It's a tough one. We don't want Santa to disappoint, but I'm just not sure the Scott family can handle another member right now.
I'm good at remembering gifts of the past. My most memorable Christmas gift I've been giving was from my husband. We'd only been together ONE month. We were only teenagers and he got me the cutest ring... a promise ring. Everyone thought we were crazy. "You've only been together a month!" "Teen relationships never work out!" But twelve years later, the promise ring has been replaced with a wedding ring, we're still going strong and I still have that promise ring. It's too small to wear, but it's tucked away in my jewelry box and I still pull it out from time to time to look at it.
What was the most memorable Christmas gift you've given or received?
I'll randomly draw one winner from today's commenters who will win their choice of one of my ebooks. Click HERE for a list of my books!
