Today is Festivus! I dont recall how I landed onto this piece of information earlier today but today happens to be Festivus – a day made famous by Seinfeld’s Frank Costanza. I recall that episode of Seinfeld – have indeed watched it many times over – Seinfeld being a favorite of my DH!
So in advance of the days to come, a Happy Festivus to all….and wonderful days ahead as well.
For Sunday Scribblings(comfort), One Single Impression(imagine), Sunday Whirl (word whirly below), Succinctly Yours (image of Santa and word is neutral – this one has exactly 140 words), dVerse Poets Pub (the poetics of presents/ce) –
For all these Sunday memes today, I have -‘Memories’

evening of comfort and quiet
the fireplace crackles bright
giggles overtake my little squirt
ride into the past
lap – wearing older brother’s shirt,
spacious on her, in it she is lost.
one, my little son
the neutral one
tighter on to this memory
to want to burst through
hold on tight, like super-glue
come, recall the comfort
and imagine it true
mind – an enigma of a sort
presence of a memory too
cherished, to be you.

I personally think, it isn't ever truly about what gifts we've been given but, the happiness we've felt in the sharing of live and joy of being together. It's always the love and fun, the smiles, they are the true gifts we remember, always. These are special. Loved the T shirt being way too big but, happily worn anyway.
yes, that is so true.. these are the true gifts.. thank you for your comments.
Agree that memories can be presents we give to ourselves, or stories we give as presents to others. Hope you have a wonderful holiday,
thank you.. and to you too
