Week 22. The best gift I ever gave.
The best gift I ever gave was one my younger brother and I presented to our mom.
The company my younger brother works for had put their cleaned refurbished desktops up for sale. He let us know and my mom, older brother and I each purchased one. None of us had ever owned a computer except for my younger brother whose company had them for sale. We had a limited knowledge of how they worked as we all used them in our jobs.
We were excited about bringing them home except for my mom who we had to drag into the 20th-century kicking and screaming. They intimidated her a little but eventually, she embraced using it and become very proficient. She even wrote a Sunday school summary for each week’s lesson and emailed them out to members of our church and her friends.
Fast forward a few years. The refurbished computers became obsolete so we bought new ones. Mom purchased a netbook. She loved it, but as time went on, problems occurred. Logging in was slow, the RAM and the operating system were not upgradeable. But she refused to buy another. My youngest brother and I decided to take matters into our own hands. We took her to an office supply store so she could pick out a new computer for her birthday.
