So I walked by the Angel Tree yesterday. I saw a request from a girl my daughter’s age:
DSI games?! This is what the needy children in our community NEED?
I am glad my daughter was not with me. She would have had to hear me rant and grumble and change my mind about doing the Angel Tree.
When actual needs, food and shelter and clothes, are met in abundance, what else is there to do but to turn “wants” into “needs?” I am not just talking about the “career welfare” folk.
We do it, too. My kids do it. I do it. I “need” naptime and coffee and internet.
