It’s that time of year again…

Time for Thanks, Gifts, and Giving

In introduction (or a simple reminder)–a few years back I read an article in the Tribune that offered personal stories about “The Gifts that Stay with us for a Lifetime.” The sweet, silly, nostalgic stories about the ‘gifts’ given really resonated with me. I requested friends, family, and readers to share similar memories to be posted here.

The response was overwhelming.

Once again, I am asking for YOUR stories, in your words, about the ‘gifts’, whether literal or not, that have stayed with you. Send them to with the heading, re: Thanks, Gifts, and Giving. I plan to post them the last week of the year, December 26 through 30.

I look forward to reading (weeping) and sharing your funny, loving, memorable ‘gift’ stories.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
