In the spirit of Christmas Eve let me share a holiday song that reminds me of my daughter and reunion. There is a long story behind this song. There is also a short story. The short story is that the first holiday I was permitted to mail my daughter a holiday gift (it was right after I found her and she was in college) I “made” wrapping paper out of brown paper. I wrote the lyrics to this song across this big sheet of brown construction paper, in script, with a black sharpie and then I wrapped all her gifts in the paper. It was very rustic, very Little House on the Prairie at Christmas. Â Makes me smile remembering the joy I experienced in doing so.
Oh, the effort I used to put into gifts for her when I was allowed to send them to her…
