[15] The Greatest Gift of All

Paula and Martin couldn’t afford presents this year, so they wrote each other stories and poems. The newlyweds rolled up their creations and placed them carefully in the tree.

Christmas day was spent laughing and crying as they reflected, reminisced – dreamed.

In the end, their greatest gift was each other.
