Best Christmas Gift of 2010

Now that the holidays are behind us, I find a moment to think about the best gift I received.

For me, it was the time spent with family. Many of my extended family members I only see at the holidays or the occasional wedding or funeral. We just don’t get together that often.

Spending the holidays with family members has always been a blessing to me. I grew up a military brat so even our immediate family wasn’t always together for Christmas, and the times we came home and went to my grandparents’ houses were that much more special.

As I get older, the times together become even more precious, as I have lost grandparents, my dad, my cousin. Christmas brings all of us together, and that’s the best part of the season.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
