What do you get in return....
So what does that $160,140 REALLY get you in return??
-Naming rights - first, middle, and last
-Glimpses of God every day
-Giggles under the covers every night
-More love than your heart can hold
-Butterfly kisses and velcro hugs
-Endless wonder over rocks, ants, clouds, and warm cookies
-A hand to hold, usually covered in jam
-A partner for blowing bubbles, flying kites, building sand castles, and skipping down the sidewalk in the pouring rain
-Someone to laugh yourself silly with, no matter what the boss said or how poorly your stocks performed that day
-A front-row seat to witness the first step, first word, first bra, first date, and first time behind the wheel
-You get yet another branch added to your family tree and if you're lucky, a long list of limbs - your grandchildren.
In the eyes of a child, you have the power to heal a boo-boo, scare away monsters under the bed, patch a broken heart, police a slumber party, ground them forever, and love them without limits so one day they, like you, will love without counting the cost.'
