A FRIEND IN NEED
My six-year-old son, Willie, was thrilled when the tooth fairy left him a dollar.
In the morning, as Willie got ready for school, he tucked the bill in his pocket. Afraid he might lose it, I suggested he leave the money at home. "Mom, I have to take it with me," Willie insisted. "Some of my friends don't have enough money to buy chocolate milk."
Those kids sure have a terrific friend. And Willie has one proud mom.
