Express Yourself - Memorable Holiday Gift

Express Yourself is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better. To help motivate one another. Jackie and I wants to get to know you better and understand our community of writers, authors, and bloggers more.

This week we want to know - What is your most Memorable Holiday Gift?

For this meme, Jackie and I didn't list our children. Or our husbands. Or even the gift of life. Those things, above all, are the best gifts ever.
But for this question, we want to know what present someone gave you that you remember most.

One Christmas I remember praying to the Christmas Angels that Santa would bring my brother Good Luck Bear. You know from the Care Bears. I was playing outside when I was, oh I don't know, like maybe 7 or 8 years old. And I just remember no one was around (we lived in BFE) and I just wished and prayed and wished some more that Santa or my parents or whoever brought the gifts would bring my brother his Care Bear. Of course I wanted Cheer Bear and Sunshine Bear but I really wanted him to have Good Luck Bear. Why? Because for his birthday that June he had received one and he let me play with it but dummy me left it outside and Rocky (our dog) got ahold of it.

Christmas morning I received the best present ever... my Cheer Bear & Sunshine and of course my brother's smile when he opened his Good Luck Bear *thank you Christmas Angels*! To this day my kids still have our original Care Bears, Pound Puppies & Purries, and Cabbage Patch/Pail Kids.

Nothing can beat the good ol days.

So what is your most treasured Memorable Holiday Gift?

Next week we want to know - What would be your Dream Winter Getaway?


  1. Good Luck Bear was one of my favorites, along with Daydream Bear. :)
    I don't have mine anymore, though. At least, I don't think I do. I should ask my mom if she kept them.

  2. Glad you got the gifts you and your bother wanted.

  3. I loved the Care Bears, and the Care Cousins! A lot of mine got really worn, and at least one started turning gray. I also still have all the Pound Puppies, Purries, and Furries, though I only ever had two Cabbage Patch Kids.

  4. I remember the Care Bears, they were pretty cute.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
