Going through some stuff here, each one a memory... some gifts given by people. Lots of memories. Got to wondering what other folks' favorite gifts and memories are.
Plastic plates. This was a long time ago when I first went out on my own after grad school. I couldn't afford a thing and my folks sent me a set of plastic dinnerware. I had been eating off of paper plates. I still remember how excited I was to received that gift.
My favorite recent gift has been fuzzy socks! (you have to appreciate I have wood floors)
[/quot Like you, Halyna, I have many favorite gifts but one of the most precious was a poem my mother wrote for me when I was in Ireland visiting my grandpa. I have a memory box in my garage with mementoes from my younger life, notes my little brother wrote to me, a name plate he made from a piece of woodwork using sodder for my name, my first piece of jewelry, my first communion purse with prayer book, my favorite picture of me and my dad that my mom had framed and a pig my son made out of candle wax with paper clips as legs. There are so many special gifts at different times of my life..
