Look What I Got

August 23, 2010


Remember my two brothers Arrow and Abel? They sent me this way cool stuffie. It came in the mail yesterday but mom didn’t let me have it until this morning.

Usually when I get a new toy I rip into it right away. But this one is different. As soon as mom gave it to me, I could smell my brothers. I sniffed and sniffed and then I licked it. I knew where it came from.

I took the toy and pranced around the house showing it to everybody. Jack looked confused, but then he doesn’t know what to do with toys anyway. Tess said so what and went back to keeping dad company while he read the newspaper.

Only mom knew how important I felt. She told me I was silly but she laughed and hugged me. She said it’s good to get so much pleasure from a simple gift.

Sometimes somebody thinks about you and wants to do something real nice for you. If you’re lucky, that someone understands your heart. Then they find a special gift for you. It makes them happy to give it to you and you’re sure happy to get it.

But it’s not really about the thing itself. It’s about the feeling that goes into it. It made me so happy that my brothers wanted me to have the same toy they have, the same toy that makes them crazy with joy. Even though they’re not here to play with me, I know they’re thinking about me.

So I’m taking real good care of my new toy and sending a big thank you to my brothers Abel and Arrow. Thanks guys!

    Oh boy Ash, I am really proud of you that you are taking such good care of the new toy your “BROVERS” sent you! Inside my heart I know you and good luck with that act! However I know your mother has a “stuffie hospital” that can always fix it up! See ya in a little over a month! You know I have to bring the littlest brother Rhett with me..sorry about that but we can ignore him like we did last time! Love the younger brother Zag
