Christmas Quote from Mary Ann’s Mountain Worth Remembering

Published December 10, 2015

My grandfather said these words to our family after opening gifts every Christmas. From chapter, “Christmas Day on the Mountain”:

Poppy proclaims, “Children, this is the best Christmas ever! We all had more than our fair share of gifts, but the only gift we ever really need is the gift of each other! That is the most precious gift of all! Remember that for as long as you live!”

As he casts his eyes around the room, Poppy gifts each of us with beautiful blue eyes twinkling with tears. Poppy reaches for Mommy’s hand, smiles at her and winks. They squeeze each other’s hands. That is their gift to each other every Christmas.

Joy and Peace to all my readers!
