I didn't realize someone knew me well enough to write my biography. We were "dirt poor" when I was a child but we always had oranges and nuts for Christmas. I still put out the oranges and nuts. The Christmas stocking is absolutely the most important part of our family Christmas. Thanks for sharing a story that means a lot to me personally.
What a beautiful story... and beautifully written .. brings us back to the basics of life.

I remember when our church would give all of us kids a brown paper bag with an orange, nuts, and a handful of peppermints in Sunday school... this was years ago... but I remember how I looked forward to those brown paper bags. Great story.
