A baby chick named Dennis


This conversation brought me to tears.

"Mama, look what I made at preschool today. It is three cheekens."

"Jonny, they sure are three chickens and I love them. You did a great job."

"Mmm,hmmm," Jonny nodded. "Do you know who they are?"

"Yes. They are Mama, Papa, and Jonny, right?" I asked as I pointed to each one.

"Noooooooooo, that is wrong Mama. That one is Daddy. That one is you. And the baby chick is Dennis."

For some reason, I was not expecting him to say that.

Children are a blessing from God and I think He uses them to help us when we need a little pick me up! Our youngest has done similar things as we wait to bring our children home. What a blessing indeed. I don't know about y'all, but I may never (okay, I will never) make the list of millionaires, but I am rich in my soon to be six blessings from God. I would not trade them for all the money in the world! Even though I have only spent 4 days of my life with three of them, they have been in my heart for two years now.

God reminds us we can't take worldly goods with us when we depart this earth, but I do believe we are allowed to take the love of our children. May God bless you and your family to bring Dennis home.
