The Best Surprise

'Twas the Monday night before Christmas when all thro' the house Ed and I had just settled our brains for a night in front of the TV when the doorbell rang. Thinking it must be the last delivery of a very long day for some poor FedEx delivery guy, Ed opened the door.

When what to his wondering eyes should appear...but our son Jack, all the way from Berlin. Surprised is to put it mildly. We were overwhelmed with joy to see him standing there. Between the pandemic and holiday visits to girlfriend Kasia's hometown, it had been four years since he had been home for Christmas. And what a great visit it has been...


Thank you, Jack. It was the best gift ever.
