If wishes came true

Jacob just turned six March 12. Looking out the window at the rain this morning, he reflected on wishes and sisters. "Dad?"

"Yep," I said, barely opening my eyes. It was 6:15 a.m.

"If wishes came true and Anna wished she didn't have a brother and I wasn't here, you would look all over the house and not find me," Jacob said.

"Then what?" I asked.

"You would make a wish."

"You know I would, Jacob."
