Today, we were watching TV in our living room. A World Vision ad came on. World Vision is an organization that we certainly support. We feel very fortunate and blessed, and we think it's important to give to those who find themselves in greater need. A chance to help others is something that should never be overlooked.
When the World Vision ad came on, J was affected. There were little children on the TV who looked very unhappy. J doesn't like it when people are unhappy. He wants to make them feel better.
J: Are they sad?
H: Yes, J. They're sad.
J: Those little boys? They're sad?
H: Yes. They're sad.
J: Why are they sad?
H: Well, you know J, you have lots of stuff. You have a house, and clothes, and toys, and food to eat any time you want it. But those little boys don't have those things. They have no toys. Often, they have no food. Some of them don't even have a house where they can live and be safe, or parents to look after them. You're a very lucky little boy. Those little boys don't have what you have. Isn't that sad?
J: Oh. That's why they're sad?
H: Yes, J. That's why they're sad. Some of them would love to have the things that you have.
J: (lying his favorite hobby horse down just in front of the TV) Here you go, boys. Here you go.
I love my son so much!
