Mistletoe Best gift you ever had

What is the best gift you have ever gotten? why? I think the year my parents told me & my sis they were taking us to Disney World was my best...

Wow, a trip to Disney World is an awesome gift.

I think one of the greatest gifts I have received is not an item or anything that could have been put under the tree. I was deployed to the Middle East and it looked like our relief wasn't going to replace us until after the new year. Initially, we were supposed to be home by Thanksgiving but was pushed for another 6 weeks. That was very heart breaking news to say the least. My wife and I had gotten married that March and so we were going to miss our first Christmas together.

While sitting in the middle of the desert and looking up upon the zilliion stars that can rarely seen in city limits, I remember praying and begging that God would intervine and make it possible for me to be home. It was indeed a long shot because it was told to us that we would remain there, but I prayed anyway. And through God, I was able to return home on December 23rd. I surprised my wife and was able to spend our first Christmas together at home. To this day, that is the best Christmas gift I had ever received...but a close second is every year watching the joy on my children's faces every Christmas morning. Indeed, I am blessed and give God the glory.
