The Best Gift


One of the best gifts I have ever received was a very unique gift that my daughter gave me for Christmas a very years ago. She gave me ownership of one square foot of land in Ireland.

She had found a place where you could buy a square foot of land in Ireland and they sent you picture of your land and directions for getting to it, It was being sold by a landowner in Ireland, and I have to say, was a really neat thing to do.

Sabrina made a scrapbook of the deed to the land and the photo and directions and other pictures of Ireland and gave that to me for Christmas. I was absolutely thrilled to have my own piece of land, just enough to stand on, in Ireland, the land of my ancestors. It was such a nice thing for her to do for me since she know that I am very interested in Ireland.

It was a thoughtful gift and one of the best gifts I have ever received. She is going to have to go some to outdo that gift.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
