Della and Jim were married just a year. They had very little money and their place was poor. But what they lacked in fancy things, they made up for with love.
The very next day was Christmas. All the money Della had to buy a gift for her dear husband was $1.87. “What on earth can I buy with that?” she asked.
Turning around, she saw her reflection in the mirror. Stepping up to the mirror, she stared at her reflection. “At least Jim loves my long beautiful hair,” she said, taking a spin. “He calls me his queen!” Then she stopped cold. “Some queen I am!” she said, “with just $1.87 to spend on a gift for my husband.”
