An Unexpected Christmas Gift

My new son-in-law's mother passed away a few years ago, as his father did many years before her. At the end of a fun, long and loving Christmas Day, he hugged me and said "Merry Christmas, Mom." He had never before called me mom.

I am deeply touched, and so grateful that God led he and my daughter to be married this year. It's such a blessing to have a new son. :)

Some think of something grandiose, and there are some who think of something relevant, humorous, unforgettable, unexpected or simply moving. Each person has his own reason for choosing a gift but whatever it may be, the most important thing is that he has thought about the person when thinking of a gift to give.
