Gift To Myself- Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday

I have dreamed of it
Far to long a fantasy
Photo envy pain

Now surprise money
Some extra in my account
It will now be mine

Oh Canon Rebel
Soon we will be together
Making great photos

For years now I have dreamed of owning an SLR camera. I have drooled, I have dreamed and I have longed. Now, thanks to a small, unexpected windfall, my dream camera will be mine. A Canon Rebel XTi is on it's way to me as we speak.

After sacrificing college, and suffering financially for months, I don't feel guilty about spending the money on myself. It's my birthday present to myself, the mom who's gone without birthday gifts for years.

Of course when it gets here, I'll probably be overwhelmed. I'll feel the guilt over buying something so huge for myself. I'll be suffocated by the anxiety of spending so much money. But for now, I'm going to enjoy imagining all of the wonderful pictures I'm going to take......

If mama ain't happy than no body happy... and I don't think anyone would argue you deserve a treat and something special just for you given everything you have given up.

Yay for you! Let me know how you like it! I'm hoping to get an SLR one day. Sigh.

Congratulations!!
I have one, A Canon Rebel XTI, I got it in April and I'm in love with it! If you can, get the 35mm-700mm zoom lens. It enables you to take fabulous pics from far away. I love it.
Woo Hoo!
Great Haiku.
