After the birth of my first daughter Annabelle, I bought a guitar hoping that I will be able to catch up on my guitar skill. Yes, I did use it for awhile, mostly playing worship songs to my daughter. I have yet to tell her that the guitar is bought using the money given to her as a gift. Maybe when she knows the truth, she will just take the guitar as her own. Praying that she will pick up some musical talents.
