I remember squeezing my eyes shut, taking an over-sized breath and blowing out candles on my birthday cake when I was 6 years old, wishing for a certain Care Bare:
Minutes later, my wish came true. I opened a box and there was the exact thing I had wished for! This memory has stayed so clear over the years, because there is a picture documenting the pure joy on my face as I held onto the coolest birthday present ever in the history of the world!
How many wishes can each of us say came true over the years of blowing out birthday candles? I know I have wished for pretty off-the-wall things since that 6th birthday: a 1969 Corvette, an entire mall just for me, world peace, to travel the world, etc.
Then last year, I decided to recall the gusto of my birthday wish so many years ago. I squeezed my eyes shut, took an over-sized breath and pictured this image in my head:
He didn't come neatly wrapped in a box minutes later, but he was worth never getting that Corvette, trip around the world, or any other material thing. This is the best gift I have ever and will ever receive...
