When I was around four years old, my parents wanted to surprise me with a special gift, which made that Christmas one to remember. I almost forgot that I had more gifts to unwrap because I was focused on discovering what my parents made me. I was not allowed to know what the special present was until Christmas day, no matter how many times I begged them to tell me.

Every year when I would think about not passing out gifts, I think of the Grinch and it motivated me to do it. The Grinch having a small heart made me have a bigger one.

There are very few contrasting details between the movie and play of A Christmas
On the other hand, these fathers’ think you can buy a child’s love with gifts every now and then. Showing your child love and affection should also be free of charge. What these children need and want is an affectionate home comprised of two loving adults that is structured and well balanced with mom and dad, mom and mom, or dad and dad being happily in love with each other. A broken home does nothing for a child and only leaves the child broken as the name it implies.

In my earlier years, I had pleaded with my parents to ‘buy’ a little brother or sister for me from the hospital, and I just wasn’t able to understand why my dad couldn’t stop by the hospital on his way home from work to purchase a baby. To my exasperation, his excuse was always, “I forgot.” Well, they finally gave in and ‘bought’ me a little brother, the light of my life. I paraded him around like he was some kind of trophy. I took him everywhere with me, either pulling him in the little red wagon or sitting him in the metal basket on my bicycle, which, unfortunately, made waffle marks on his little legs. I WAS HAPPY!!!
I used it during family trips and when I was running errands for my family. For two years, I felt how much of value the car is because it managed to work smoothly. The gas consumption was also not bad for a second-hand car. When it finally showed signs that it will soon be not as functional as before, I felt sad but at the same time was okay with it because I know it was bound to happen. My dad told me that cars are meant to retire one day because they also have their lifespans.

Usually I beg my mom or dad to giv them money or food, but when that fails, I just try to smile at them and let them know that I care. I have even given out a care package to a homeless couple before, and seeing their happiness made day so much better. These people are not invisible to me anymore, and never will
The first job I ever had been at a grocery store called Ray’s Food Place. I started working there when I turned 16 as a part time courtesy clerk. I needed the job so I could raise money to buy my cheerleading uniform.I got the job pretty easily because my dad was best friends with the manager, I didn’t even have to fill out an application.
