i would say, it's been a difficult year for the girl. away from home, living with friends & not family, taking bus to school & trying to cope with a high-strung education system.
given the trying circumstances, i think she's done remarkably well & she knows that, too. that's why she's come out with her year-end wish list. starting with this pair of nike sneakers....
the list includes a swatch & some clothes. i jokingly told her it's that time of the year again to take that pound of flesh from me.
seriously, i shouldn't complain. there's still no sign of an iPhone, iPad or dSLR on that list.
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! matt 7:11
