Bliss in disguise

It was her first birthday. The gifts were showered from everybody. Her uncle has nothing to give. He is deprived off wealth and value.



He lifted her from the cradle and gave her a gentle raise off his arms. She giggled and liked her uncle's gift. All other gifts are silent behind their wraps.

I tried all sort of things to bring my posts on updates; tried changing all modes to Yes in Site feed. I ended up in ruining my old template.

Please give me suggestions, if you have any????
