A Grandmother’s Gift

By Sarojni Mehta-Lissak

On the summer solstice of 2005, I lost my 94-year-old maternal grandmother, Evelyn Brunel Carr. She had slowly been slipping away from us for at least five years, and though we knew her passing was expected, when it hit – it hit hard. Since then, I have done many things to keep her memory alive, […]

The Best Gift Ever

By Jeffery Cohen

At four in the morning I crept down the hallway and peeked around the corner at the Christmas tree that reached to the ceiling. Its lights made the room glow as they reflected off shiny glass balls and silvery tinsel draped from pine needle branches. At its bottom, a huge box lay wrapped in holiday paper, topped […]

My dear friend and neighbor has a December birthday. A couple of years ago, he came home from work, on his birthday, to find a large stack of at least 20 cookbooks on his screened porch, along with a birthday card. A friend of his had spent months scouring thrift stores for cool, interesting cookbooks, […]

The Photo Gift

By Diane Stark

“Jules, make sure you take a lot of pictures today, OK?” I told my 14-year-old daughter on a recent family outing. “I will,” she promised without hesitation. She knew how important the pictures were to me. They were very important to me, but they weren’t actually for me. No, I needed lots of pictures of […]

The Amy Gift

By Cynthia Cavanaugh

We were moving back “home” to the west coast from our three year stint in a mid-western city. So, I called Aunt Amy in Lincoln, told her we’d be passing through, and we’d like to take her, along with Cousin David, to dinner. No, she insisted, she wanted to cook dinner for us. We arrived […]

Cheap Gifts and Love

By Janey Womeldorf
