The best gift I’ve ever received in life is the gift of education. I write this because from an early age, my mother instilled in me the importance of having a good education and making good grades in school. She said that getting a good education would one day lead me far in life, and help me get a good job someday. She was right about both of those facts. Because of her, I earned 3 degrees. I have an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, and Master’s degrees in English. My schooling journey is over now. Yet, education has and will always be important to me, and a vital part of my life’s story. The second best gift I’ve ever received in life were flowers from an in-law on my twenty-ffth birthday. They were special because it was the first time anyone had ever bought flowers for me in life, and because the gift was thoughtful. I had told everyone weeks before my birthday what I wanted, and the fact that she had remembered moved and touched me.

Happy New Year, all! 🙂
