Although I'm a smidge past 60, the best and most unexpected Christmas gift I've ever received was a few years ago, given to me by my mother and stepfather. They gave each of their children -- four of us in all -- checks for $4,000. As a single parent I was struggling to make ends meet but this gift of love allowed me to pay off some bills and make a generous donation to Mama Hill's Help, Inc., a local tutorial program run entirely on small donations. I could have gone shopping, like my other siblings, but my parents' generosity allowed me to exercise gift-giving and that, truly, was my greatest gift.
