If wishes came true

Jacob just turned six March 12. Looking out the window at the rain this morning, he reflected on wishes and sisters.

"Dad?"

"Yep," I said, barely opening my eyes. It was 6:15 a.m.

"If wishes came true and Anna wished she didn't have a brother and I wasn't here, you would look all over the house and not find me," Jacob said.

"Then what?" I asked.

"You would make a wish."

"You know I would, Jacob."

Wow, what a tear jerker for a grandmother to read! To know that children have thoughts like that and many times we are too busy, too sleepy to listen and to understand their need for reassurance. Thank you for listening to your children and acknowledging their fears and needs - even in the midst of your busiest of times.
How like Jacob we should be as we approach our Heavenly Father and seek his reassurance. Love, Mom

Greg, it sounds like a part of a children's book...very poetic...just a beginning....write them all down and put them together later. Such a moving, concise conversation.
grace, Julie
