    The Best Present

    I love the gifts that Christmas brings

    In boxes big and small—

    Tied up with sparkly bows and bells;

    But what is best of all …

    Is seeing love and thankfulness

    In smiles and shining eyes,

    When each one in my family

    Opens up his gift surprise!
