The Priceless Gift

The Priceless Gift

From Chicken Soup for the Grandparent's Soul

The Priceless Gift

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy and enough money to buy me gifts.

Shawna Whitmore

I love to give and receive presents; they are always so much fun to open. One day my grandson, Justin, sent me six dollars and thirty cents. I could not think of one good reason why he would send me that amount of money. I thought about it for a couple of days and then called my grandson.

I asked him, “Why did you send Grandma six dollars and thirty cents?”

Justin told me that I always did such nice things for him, that he wanted to give me everything he had.

After hanging up the phone, this old grandma sat down and had a good cry. I knew in my heart that I would never again receive a gift given with such pure and innocent love.
