As I ran around this Christmas season, getting everything bought and everything done, one of my new friends and I decided not to buy each other gift, but to take the money and adopt a family. Of couse, we didn’t stick to our plan and ended up giving something to each other and I have to say it was one of the best Christmas presents I ever received. It was a handwritten letter giving me the gift of friendship.

Merry Christmas friends!…and Happy Birthday!
