I was chatting with Charles tonight while I cooked supper, and I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. Without much hesitation, he said, "Maybe a football player." He's really into football right now, so I wasn't surprised. I asked him why he wanted to be that.
"So, I can make lots of money." he said. I'm thinking "Oh, no, where did we go wrong?" And he adds, "So I can buy all kinds of stuff for our family, and a big house for us all to live in.
He went on to talk about how we could all come to the "big house" for all the holidays and how he would buy it at the beach, so we could all go to the beach all the time.
I'm not sure he has exactly all the right priorities , but it sure is clear that our family is important to him, and for that I am so thankful.
