Something that means a lot to me is the rosary that my dad made for me. That's something that he made out of straws, paper, and yarn. The importance is he made it without me even asking. He says that it takes a long time to make. It’s also very important for me since he’s been absent from my life for years. Everything that he gives me is a treasure for me, for the significance that he’s the one giving it to me. Also, the meaning that he gave me a rosary means a lot to me since we’re so religious. The main reason it is so important to me is simply because he made it in jail. Not only did he make it in jail, but his name (Jose Guadalupe) and birth (12/12) is so religious that it means so much more to me. I can’t imagine how he felt making it for me, and not just that but making it as a birthday present means so much more. I wasn’t expecting him to send me a birthday present or anything to begin with. The fact that he took time to send it out so it can make it for my birthday means a lot to me. He really made it with a lot of love! I just know that!
