How often have you seen an oustretched empty hand?

Raising a family was difficult.

Many personal issues and life challenges.

WE worked hard and long and we did our best to give our kids and the family a decent life, and I believe we did that.

But I still remember when the kids were in school how often I seen an outstretched arm with an empty hand.  They needed something for school again.

It seemed that they always needed something for school.

But, that  is the way life is today.

This had made me come up with a new definition for a FATHER...

 

A Father is someone who carries pictures where his money used to be.
