My all-time favorite Christmas gift was dinner and a show. No, not just any dinner and a show, but an elegant December dinner in a trendy San Francisco restaurant with my oldest daughter, and two highly sought after tickets to the San Francisco Opera. The dinner was original and fun, and the opera was a cultural treat almost beyond compare. But what I remember most about that night a few years ago was walking through the chilly city later that evening with my daughter....laughing, talking, savoring the lights of nighttime San Francisco, just being together.
It was a gift of time....a gift of thoughtfulness....a gift of memories. That's what I loved most about her gift to me. I pray that someday when she is a mother, one of her children is kind and loving enough to give her such a gift.
