There were watercolors, paint brushes, charcoal pencils, oil pastels, and more!!! My mind recalled the first time I'd ever received such a precious gift. My father had sent it to me in honor of my high school graduation. He truly believed I was an incredible artist!

I remember opening his gift and feeling so special! As I was processing how wonderful the gift was, my mother snatched the box from my hands and tossed it angrily across the floor!!! I remember scrabbling to pick up the colorful pieces that had scattered and broken, before she tossed it in the garbage.
