Patience for Presents Excerpt:

Jeff Ettiene woke up with a big smile on his face. It was finally his birthday, the day he had been so eagerly waiting for. He couldn’t wait to celebrate with his friends and have a super fun party. Jeff quickly jumped out of bed and got dressed in his favorite outfit. He raced downstairs, where his brother Mark was hanging streamers and balloons. Their mother was in the kitchen, gathering the ingredients to make a delicious cake. They were both busy getting everything ready for the big celebration.
The party wouldn’t begin for a couple of hours. To pass the time, Jeff decided to assist with the party preparations. He helped Mark to set up the table for snacks and drinks, and then he taped some balloons to their front door. Even though the tasks kept Jeff’s hands busy, his mind still raced with anticipation for the party.
