Gifts and presents

One of the best gift I ever got as a child was a flashlight. A used flashlight.

My older brother said the best gift he ever got was a pencil sharpener. I could see why he said that but I think he denied it later.

Here’s what I have appreciated in gifts.

  1. Something I specifically asked for like a shirt or a football.
  2. Something I wasn’t expecting like a video game or my first cell phone.
  3. Something that was a thoughtful gesture like the piece of chocolate the girl who sat next to me in Elementary Algebra gave me.

I write so my words and story can last longer than me. My name is Debrezion; I’m also known as Derezion, Dee or Azen. I always know where I am by what people call me. I enjoy church, using computers, and of course writing. I’ve been to Ethiopia twice. I was reared in California, USA but my parents are from Ethiopia. I’m lucky to be alive and I should thank God for that.
