Every Christmas I enjoy seeing my children get the things that they have wanted all year. My wife and I strive to give them everything that they want. I guess you can say that they are spoiled.
This year something happened that will probably stick with me way into my next life.
My family and I got up early to see what Santa had brought us and we began opening presents. There was the typical, “Cool…Thanks…I love it…you did not have to do that”.
Towards the end my youngest son gave me a box that was wrapped more in tape than wrapping paper. I swear it took me 30 minutes to get to the box. I opened it up and found a pocket watch with an engraving of a Bass fish. I looked over at him and his eyes were the clearest and most loving that I have ever seen or maybe they have always been like that but never took the time to slow down and notice.
I gave him a hug and he hugged back but this time we did not let go. I could feel that he was proud of his gift to me and I was just as proud to own
