Being a very little girl.
Maybe four or five.
Waiting for my Birthday.
Hoping to get a horse.
I was dark when I woke that morning. My sisters were both still asleep. I felt something stiff next to me. A paper wrapped something. The package was almost as big as I was. It was not in a box. What could it be.
A doll. A big soft stuffed doll that was as tall as I was. She had elastic on her feet and hands that I could slip MY feet and hands into, so we could dance.
I loved her for a long time.
But, I really wanted a horse!
Well, one could always hope,
Christmas was only a few weeks away!
