THE FAMILY GIFT

by Greg Archer

I have come to believe that the best gifts arrive unwrapped. No curly ribbons. No bows. No tags. No warnings.
I received my 2003 Christmas present early this year. Actually, I first held it in my hands in the fall of 2002. It was a floppy disk my Uncle John had sent to me from Chicago, where he lives and where I was raised. There was a note: "Here it is Greg ... I wrote something about our family. Take a look."
I did. I read a few paragraphs, felt some odd emotional stirring within and quickly stored the story on my laptop, where it would be safe, and, more importantly as I would later discover, where it would be hidden.
