Shiny And Bright

Shiny And Bright
Once upon a time when I was very poor during a dark dismal time
in my life this Beautiful Christmas ornament became mine. I went Christmas
shopping with my sister. I had no money so I really went Christmas window shopping.
I was so sad and depressed but I just went along because she ask me. As we shopped I saw this lovely ornament and I fell in love with it. It was quite expensive so definitely out of question.
A few days later my sister brought a plain white box wrapped up and tied with a
pretty bow. I opened it and to my delight was this special ornament all shiny and bright. I can still remember the happiness I felt...why in fact I still feel it now. I hope that your Christmas
will be shiny and bright and may you receive something totally unexpected. In fact
why don't you give someone something they would never expect. Who knows
maybe 30 years later they may still remember and do a post about it.

We used to have a few of these in the Christmas tree, when I was young. They were real special and my mom used to store them in the nicest paper. Sure is a lovely piece Angela!
