"I don't know honey, but I'm pretty sure that it costs a lot less than here," I say.
"Well, I want to give my money to Africa."
Oh, the sweetness of those words.
I told him to look through the basket of Christmas cards and find the one from the Open Arms Home for Children in South Africa.
I told him that although we wish we could give more, this was the only international organization that we were donating to.
He wanted to know exactly how much we gave to these kids. I told him the amount and said that was all we could afford. I pointed out that this donation, along with all the donations we give regularly to local charities, was one that I felt strongly about.
He said, "That's not enough, we need to do more."
And my heart melted.
I guess this makes up for all that fighting yesterday.
