Many years ago when my youngest son was a teenager and we had a talk about all the lies he told his many girl friends. After a while I became frustrated and yelled at my son;
"I wish you would have a girl so you'd know how all these fathers feel about you!"
My youngest son has a daughter now.
Not so long ago my oldest son called me and began making fun of his brother becoming a father.
After I hung up the phone with him I yelled into thin air;
"I wish you would have a son so he could teach you a thing or two!"
Two weeks later my oldest son called and told me he was going to be a father.
My oldest son has a son now.
Those were the best two wishes I ever made.
