The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry


How many times in my life have I read this story?  Or read a similar story?  Or seen one version or another in a television show or movie?  Too many times to count and the reason is clear.  It is a simple, romantic story of a poor young couple who sacrifice for each other.  I will probably read this story in some form or another for the rest of my life for isn't the true nature of love to sacrifice for each other.
