My Wish

Hello Ms. Johnson, I’m sure this sounds strange our mutual friend, said you need a change. She told me how hard you work every day, come home to your children, no time for play. Your husband left you without any money and traded family, for tainted honey. You work as a nurse, working hard for each dime, yet nothing’s left over at holiday time. A holiday spent solely enjoying life, playing with your kids no worry and no strife. this dream keeps you going, each and every day, my dear Ms. Johnson I believe I have a way. I have a house with an awesome ocean view for two weeks Ms. Johnson, it belongs to you. I’m going on a journey and would find it grand if you could watch my house and enjoy my strand. If you and your children would like to come here, believe me Ms. Johnson you’ve nothing to fear. When you call Janet, she’ll give you my number, my wish for you is a little less cumber. Sincerely Brenda Meier-Hans 12.29.2014 Contest: My Wish For You
