Our daughter didn’t expect anything big this year. She figured that she would end up with something predictable.
Since we don’t like to be predicted, we got her a new camera. After having to borrow her dad’s very old school digital, she has one of her own. She was delightfully surprised this morning.
Of course, she’ll be less delightfully surprised to find this picture (cropped by me, not her) posted here. After all, she expects to post them on her myspace.
And I promise, dear one, to not take any more of your pictures. However, this is for me a reminder that sometimes we really can be pleasantly surprised by those who love us and have our best interest at heart.
