My husband gave my 6 year old son a $10 bill.
This $10 bill went with my son everywhere, from one pair of jeans to another, one hoodie to the other.
My son would even sleep soundly with the $10 bill under his head.
You see, he was holding out to buy something special.
One day my son and I go to the local grocery store where a man was singing carols and ringing a bell.
My son asks me "what is he doing?"
I told my son "he's singing to get our attention in hopes of collecting money for the poor or for children who don't have toys."
I proceeded to keep walking but my son wasn't next to me.
I turned around to see his little hand digging in his pocket, pulling out his $10 bill.
He slides the bill into the slot, says Merry Christmas and walks over to me.
I said "you made mommy very happy."
He told me "I heard a voice say go, give him the money."
Then he says "I heard another voice say "no, keep the money, you want a toy."
I told my son "you listened to the right voice……” He looks up at me with his hands in the air and asks "but who are they"
I laughed and said "they're you."
