A very nice uplifting, thought provoking story. I've had the same thoughts the dad in your story has. Thanks for sharing. God bless.
Here's my favorite line: "“We’re been enjoying one another since I’ve been home." That kind of priority - especially in the midst of adversity - is evidence of God for sure.

A great story, rich in irony and realistically drawn characters.

I wonder if you'd consider changing the phrase "suffered from Down's Syndrome." I have a brother with that condition, and I've known many people with Down's--they aren't suffering, but supernaturally gifted with joy.

Love the bumper sticker, and the great message.

Love this! Wonderful job - ah, yes, the "good old days". And I, too, love the bumper sticker. Better than "God is my co-pilot", He IS MORE than a co-pilot, isn't He?
