Back in the Days

Christmas was coming around  again I was so happy I could not wait to go to 
sleep and wake up in the morning, the tree smelled so good it was cut with our 
own hands and drug through the woods.
Finally" it was morning I went into the living room I had a rag doll, one candy 
cane stick ,one orange and a few nuts with my name on it under the tree.
My rag doll was so special it was an original made from my socks and buttons 
from an old shirt for the eyes so she could see how happy I was on Christmas.
We had biscuits and molasses with salt pork grease it was so good. the 
happiness that I felt lasted for a life time, and at no time with six sisters and one 
brother did I think we were poor. times has changed but I still remember, and 
appreciate back in the days.

    No, we weren't poor. We were rich beyond our dreams. The government forgot to tell us how poor we were so we enjoyed the important things "back in the days." Congratualations on having this gem "Back In The Days" featured. Vince
