We were putting away Christmas ornaments yesterday.
I saw a very old one…
In 1982 my grandfather made me a little tiny sled out of popsicle sticks as a tree ornament. It’s a cute little thing and just about every year it adorns our Christmas tree.
I was explaining to my daughter how old it is. She’s seven so it’s kind of need to see things that are “old.”
But I realized how a cool gift it really was.
Every year I think fondly of my grandfather when I see it. He gave me a lot when he gave me that ornament. I’m glad I kept it.
I hope I give a gift that nice one day.
