Undeserving

I didn't want to complain about my Birthday this year. After all, I am an adult. Jeff got me a Twilight card, (it was funny) and we went to see Race to Witch Mountian with Derek and Clint, and went to Paradise Bakery afterwards. Then Clint and Derek chose a Disney Ice Cream Cake from Baskin Robbins. That was sweet. And I am having brunch with all of my girlfriends on this Saturday, and I was looking forward to that. But inside, I was a little disappointed that Jeff didn't get me anything.Then yesterday, Jeff came home from work and told me that he had another present for me that he had ordered a while ago, but it just came today. And he took a camera from behind his back. A NICE camera. Like the kind I have always wanted, but knew I would probably never get. So, instead of being happy, I was a little upset. We can't afford anything like that right now! Then he told me he had a lot of help paying for it. He called all of my family and some of my friends, and his family...I have been crying since last night. So, I feel very undeserving, not only of the camera, but to have such sweet, wonderful and loving people in my life.

I don't deserve any of it, but I will definately try to be better, and do for as many people as I can what you have all done for me. Thank you does not seem like enough to say, but THANK YOU!!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

Rachel I am so glad you were suprised!! And I am so happy to have the opportunity to show my appreciation for all the love and kind acts you have shown to me and my girls through the years. You are the best sister and aunt I could of hoped for. Those who know you and have you for a friend, or sister, or aunt, or mom, or wife, are truly blessed!

I agree with what Kylie said, you do deserve it! It was so difficult not to ask if you had gotten it yet but wait for you to say something first! I'm excited to see what pictures you take.

I'm glad you finally got it!! It kind of makes it better that you had to wait for it...okay. No it doesn't. That sucks. Now you will have to take some great "Best Friends (Depending on the day)" pics of our boys. You are so cool and totally deserve it.
