  This story is about gift, isn't it?

  Merry Christmas,my friends! I had a wonderful Christmas Eve, how about yours? What do we call tonight? Holy night, silent night or peaceful night? Anyway, this is the most wonderful Christmas I've ever had in the past twenty years.

  Today, I spent the afternoon with Lara and Mark's family. We got together for snack,went to church together,had dinner together, and exchanged gifts together. The gift part is my favourite for Christmas. Emily brought me a cookie cutter, which I once by chance told her that I didn't have one after the cookie lesson. There is also a pair of star earing. She said that she tried to see if I wear earings. I am so touched by the gift. Things come when you never expected it before are all blessings from god. The gifts prepared by their daughters for Emily and Tom are two winter plates, which they can use to have dinner and sit quietly together.Nice ,sweet and considerate,like Emily's gift for me!

  After all the sibling families left, I joined with Lara and Mark for the family gift exchanging. Being involved with this family get-together is another wonderful part of the Christmas experience. We waited for turns for each of us opening all our gifts. All of gifts for Kierra and Lianne are toys,of course,most of the stuff are for their basement kitchen project, which Lara told me about. It was a fantastic idea, isn't it? Having watched Kierra and Lianne opening their gifts, I can't help feeling that they are so blessed, with the best mommy and daddy, and I am happy seeing them opening all the colorful bags with smile and anticipation. Of course, I am eager to wait till they are done so that I can have a look at my gift bag. Four of them prepared a book-'Cincinnat Today' for me and Lianne shared her picture with me, a cute one,typical for the crazy girl. Mark's music tie is the funny one and Lara's umbrella is really huge.Kierra and Lianne got their cookie set,cooking book, and a whole lot of kitchen stuff. Lara kept the cloth and ribbons with gift bags for recycling. She called herself lazy, but I think it is smart and environmental friendly! I will do the same thing.Lianne got lots of video games, which Mark told me in private was from Kierra's former gifts. Lara said that these games cost no money. And Lianne was happy with these. The interesting story is that Kierra found out about her games and said that she just looked for them days before and couldn't find it!!! We all burst into laugh hearing that. Lianne is bad when keeping from not telling what the gift is. And she suddenly said,'Mum, how about open that umbrella!' Lara didn't want to know what was in there actually before she opened the bag. So much fun with children! Four of them each had a gift with the same size-four snowman plates. Putting them together is wonderful. This is family,warm like sunshine.

  Finally, the time came to open the stockings. I knew about it days before as Lianne or Kierra said that the one with Winne the Pooh is for Xiaorui. I was so happy to know about it. But still,having no idea of what is inside, I look forward to open it all the evening. The stocking with Winne on it , I already love it very much. Inside my Winne stocking, there is a cup with Winne,the tiger,piglet and the dunkey on it.  Lara told me to look back and I saw my name on it! They ordered it specially for me. This made me feel so special!I must say I love it. Some more stuffs, chocolates of different flavor ,crackers and candies, nice!

  Around 10 pm, Mark drove me home. Along the way, downtown is so beautiful with all lights on. I suddenly remember that Cincinnati is after all a wonderful city.Staying at home and school most of the time, with no way to travel around, I just kept forgetting that. They are certain things that make me emotional, one of which is a view of a beautiful city at night. I dreamed about Shanghai for college when I was a little girl.I dreamed about  USA when I was at college. And the view at this moment is a dream coming true.

  Mum, I am good here, with people caring about me. you will be happy about it. Back at home, mum told me through QQ that she was on the way to Jingchuan again to take care of grandpa in hospital. And she felt sorry that the cloth she bought for me didn't arrive yet . She want me to have them for Christmas. My heart ached thinking about this. Mum is doing everything for her daughter and still want to do more. God, you have no reason to feel down since you are so blessed with a loved one. Nothing is greater than a mother's love. You've grown to understand it.

  This is the most wonderful Christmas. This Christmas is all about my favourite-gift! I love receiving gifts which means I am loved. I love preparing gifts for others which means there are people I love still around me.

  I am grateful for what life has brought me. And I am forever thankful for people including me into their lives. Thank you and merry Christmas!

  I am blessed to have you in my life, my friends!
