Best Christmas Gift

One of the blogs I read asked: " What was your best Christmas gift?" My answer is Jesus. The second was my husbands life. The third is my family all together.

As a child I was always disappointed because my parents gave me what they thought I should have such as a doll etc. There was one doll I wanted and that was a bride doll which I got but I didn't get the one with a change of clothing. I wanted trucks, trains ,garages . I did get a train but not like my neighbors who were five boys. Their train was electric, I got a wind up one. If I had saved it I could have gotten a lot of money for it. As I got older I liked sewing clothes for the dolls. I also liked doctor kits.Some of the gifts I liked were a round plaid purse, and a record player.

I was talking this over with my daughter and I told her I found myself to be very ungrateful. She pointed out that my biological parents had died and what I really wanted was them. Maybe so but I feel bad that I wasn't satisfied.

Today I am very thankful the life I have.

Why Ms. Betty, you were a tom boy? Do not feel bad...The Bible says that as a child we think as a child and speak as a child....
