Sometimes they surprise you 

I always wonder if I'm doing a good job as a mother with the Girl. I think most parents feel the same way. You wonder if you're instilling good values and a sense of caring in them. You hope they're not too materialistic, especially when they keep adding to their list to Santa.

Today was one of the days where I got to see what a caring daughter the Aggie and I are raising.

This morning the Girl and I met my mom and stepfather at the downtown Neiman Marcus store to see Santa. After that, she had a birthday party to attend. On our way to the birthday party, we saw a homeless man on a street corner holding a sign. She asked if he was homeless and I said yes. Then she wanted to know what his sign said, so I told her: Homeless. Need a Bible, food, and clothes. God bless you.

The Girl said, that just breaks my heart. Then she got quiet. After about five minutes she said, I said a prayer for that man.

It was all I could do not to cry.
