There is only one gift that stands out in my memory after all these years. When I was around 4 or 5 years old my Uncle Gene made me a wooden gun. It was all I remember playing with as it was the only toy gun I ever had. Most of my gifts were clothes. My three younger brothers did not get a gun. Perhaps that is also what made it special. Besides that my uncle did not always give us Christmas presents.

O God, it has been said that You love Your children as if each one was Your only child. We thank You for assuring us each one of us is precious to You. We thank You for all who make us feel special by their attentiveness and special gifts we have received from them. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
