Was there a toy or thing you always wanted as a child, during the holidays or on your birthday, but never received? Tell us about it.
I want to answer this. Yes, I always dreamed of my own Fender Stratocaster guitar but one of the more expansive models. But I never felt angry that I didn´t get a 2000 dollar guitar. Fortunately I´m grown up with the thinking that it is not so much about what you get, but rather that people come together during holiday or birthday. That´s what makes me much more happy.
I often got anything as my family was not too poor but it´s not so that my family could throw around thousand dollar or euro gifts. But as said, that was never a drama for me and I today still believe that not everything is about gifts or money. Being together on the days is for me much more worth than any object.
Oh and I anyway still had the chance to play on grandpa´s own Stratocaster time by time as he played guitar as well. 🙂
