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.
