  1. I love this idea! We all have so much "Stuff" as it is. My daughter is a financially struggling college student. She gifted me the MOST wonderful birthday/Mother's Day gift (they fall very close to each other)this year. She made me a power point CD and on it, she had scanned photos of us from her childhood to now with touching messages and remembrances, she included current digital pictures and she even included one of a fog shrouded favorite barn near here that I took a picture of and she selected a poem to place with the photo that absolutely made me bawl! I could not have ordered a more perfect, heartfelt gift and I will treasure it forever. I have already asked for the same thing every year! It is just one example of how we can give "From the Heart"…which just happens to be the title of my first published work in the "Chicken Soup for the Parent's Soul" book! That story was a gift to my dear late Mother who was deep in the grips of Alzheimer's Disease. Thank you for reminding us of the reason for the season…it is about people, not things, and I am going to try extra hard to remember and uphold that.
