Balloons can be used for practical purposes of medical treatment, meteorology, transportation, and military defense. But their decorative use is probably the most famous of all. There is just something magical about balloons, which evokes fun, laughter, and celebration. A colorful bunch of balloons can bring a smile to faces of young and old alike.
I want to share with you a birthday present I received from UNICEF last October.
This was written on the envelope flap:
I was like, “Balloons?” I wondered why it was written there when I only got an envelope.
This is what I found inside:
|An uninflated balloon with the organization's logo. How sweet is that?|
Again, a balloon has proven to put a smile on one’s face, my face. Though far from my family, I felt a sudden rush of celebration.
Again, I would like to thank UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund, formerly United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) for the thoughtful gift.
