    I was walking around in a Target

    store, when I saw a Cashier hand this little boy some money back.
    The boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old.
    The Cashier said, "I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this
    Then the little boy turned to the old woman next to him: ''Granny,

    are you sure I don't have enough money?''

    The old lady replied: ''You know that you don't have enough money to buy
    this doll, my dear.''

    Then she asked him to stay there for just 5 minutes while she went to look
    a round. She left quickly.

    The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.

    Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this
    doll to.

    It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for Christmas.

    She was sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her."
    I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus would bring it to her after all,
    and not to worry.
    But he replied to me sadly. "No, Santa Claus can't bring it to her where
    she is now. I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to
    my sister when she goes there."

    His eyes were so sad while saying this. "My Sister has gone to be with
    God. Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought
    that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister.''

    My heart nearly stopped.

    The little boy looked up at me and said: "I told daddy to tell mommy not
    to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall."

    Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then
    told me "I want mommy to take my picture with her so she won't forget me."

    I love my mommy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says
    that she has to go to be with my little sister."
    Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.

    I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. "Suppose we check

    again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?''

    OK" he said, "I hope I do have enough" I added some of my money to his
    with out him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the
    doll and even some spare money.
    The little boy said: "Thank you God for giving me enough money!"
    Then he looked at me and added, "I asked last night before I went to sleep
    for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy
    could give It to my sister. He heard me!''
    I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mommy, but
    I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the
    doll and a white rose.''

    My mommy loves white roses."

    A few minutes later, the old lady returned and I left with my basket.

    I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started.
    I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind.

    Then I remembered a local news paper article two days ago, which mentioned
    a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young
    woman and a little girl.

    The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical

    state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the
    life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to
    recover from the coma.

    Was this the family of the little boy?
    Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the news
    paper that the young woman had passed away.
    I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to
    the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people
    to see and make last wishes before her burial.

    She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand
    with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest.

    I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed for
    ever.. The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is
    still, to this day, hard to imagine.
    And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from
    Now you have 2 choices:

    1) Repost this message, or

    2) Ignore it as if it never touched your heart.

    The quote of the month is by Jay Leno: "With hurricanes, tornados, fires
    out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the
    country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and
    terrorist attacks, "Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the
    Pledge of Allegiance?"

    For those who prefer to think that God is not watching over us.... go
    ahead and delete this. For the rest of us... pass this on.
