    “Son, that’s a pretty hard question to answer. But I do believe that any wish you make can come true if you help the wish.

If that were true, there would be a lot of lazy people in this old world. No one would be working. Everyone would be wishing for what they needed or wanted.
    “Papa,” I asked, “how can you help a wish?”
    “Oh, there are a lot of ways,” Papa said. “Hard work, faith, patience, and determination. I think prayer and really believing in your wish can help more than anything else.”

    It’s easy to change if you give it your attention
    All you gotta do

    me.”
