A Bucket List, A 100-Mile Rummage Sale and a Husband Dare

Gifts I Didn’t Know I Wanted

I heard a little clip of an interview on the radio. A little girl was asked, “Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas.” Her reply was amazing. “No, I didn’t,” she said, pausing – “but it’s not MY birthday, is it?” I didn’t…
