A set of oil paints complete with easel, canvas papers, linseed oil, palette,, palette knife, apron that comes in its own attache case. My father gave it to me. I would never never forget the way I had that so much joy in my spirit and in my heart when I opened that gift. It meant so much to me because afterall, the stern discipline my father imposed on us, I realized he loved me so much because he believed in my dreams.

Hi Bingkee,
That means you can paint. Can you show us samples of your paintings or even sketches? I'm sure you miss your father so much after that wonderful Christmas gift and the other memorable things he has done for you. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you my friend. God bless you always in everything that you do.

I would say it was my first kiss ever,four years back.Though my first love did not last,the feelings were pure and earnest.

How have you been my friend?Season's greetings to you.God Bless You and your loved ones always.

Hi Sameera,
Yes, that would be a very special Christmas gift worth remembering for a lifetime. Too bad the relationship did not last. I hope your present love will be a lasting love that will last a lifetime. I'm very fine my friend. You're the one who was absent for a long time and I miss the details of that absence. Merry Christmas to you too and a Prosperous New ahead of you. I wish you all the best in the world. God bless you always.

so far, it was when my bf for 3 years(now hubby) traveled half-way around the world to spend Christmas with me:) that was so meaningful to me that despite his hectic schedule & business commitments, he decided to come... & i was not wrong he's traditional and a good-hearted man & an answer to my prayers:)
cheers for the New Year, Mel!
hope you had a wonderful holidays together with your loved ones:) Godspeed..

Hi Shawie,
Yes, that was a most wonderful Christmas gift for you. Love is unquantifiable and the only gift that really last up to a lifetime. No other gift can ever come close to its matchless value. I'm so happy for you Shawie that you found your true love in America and you are making the most of your stay there by helping the less privileged people of your province. God bless you more for that. A very Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones.
