Dear Mom and Dad……

If you’re a parent and see this picture of an opened wallet, you know where the money is going—to one of your children.

The wallet, of course, is opened many times, and those times multiply according to the number of children you have. My husband and I have five, so our wallet was very busy, and very tired!

“Thanks Mom and Dad,” was/is always the response. “I love you more than anything in the world!” Sweet words from a grateful child–a child with dreams.

Who can refuse a child with dreams? No matter how outrageous their dream may seem to us. Dreams are the spurs of life, though in a young person, dreams can change–monthly, if not daily.

Still, we want to do whatever we can to see our baby happy. So we open our wallets, hoping we’ll find a few dollars still in it. Then we wait for the response, the words, the hugs, the smiles. And we love it!

We love it that we can give gifts to our children–because they are truly God’s gift to us.
