Christmas Eve Gift

“Christmas Eve Gift.”
She said the words every year, starting early in the morning before the sun even rose. Often while she stood over the stove stirring her chocolate gravy and baking her homemade biscuits, our request.
An we’d always say it back.
“Chirstmas Eve Gift, Grandma.”
And she’d give us a kiss and a smile, and we’d know that Christmas Eve Gift was better than anything we might unwrap under the tree.
