The Best Christmas Gift

I'm joining Two Writing Teachers for a month of writing and commenting.  Please visit their site to read other Slice of Life stories.

"What do you want for Christmas?" Keith asked me in December.

"The only thing I want is to visit my sister in Florida."

And today, I got my Christmas gift.  

As you can see from the photo, I've found the perfect spot for visiting, writing and reading.  I can hear the fountain outside as the breeze weaves in and out of the orange trees.  Laughter fills the porch as we catch up.  It's perfect.  

The next several days are dedicated to sister time.  

Thank you Keith.  This is the best Christmas present ever.  


  1. Sisters hold a special bond. So glad you got your Christmas wish.

  2. Enjoy. It's like you got to open it twice.

  3. Enjoy. It's like you got to open it twice.

  5. That's a wonderful gift! I can just imagine the breeze in the orange trees!

  6. Enjoy every moment...and write about a lot of them!
