The best article in the December issue was “Wish List” by Jennifer P. who wanted only one present for Christmas - and it wasn’t something anyone could buy her. It was an acceptance letter from a college. That will be me next year, going to the mailbox every day praying I get the envelope saying I got in. I know that is a scary feeling - the anticipation of waiting for that letter. The article never said if she got in, but I’m sure she did. Some day I’m sure I will too.
