So Exciting!

A couple of weeks ago, I took a gamble and called the Make-a-Wish Foundation. I wasn't sure if Clayton actually qualified for their program, but wanted to give it a shot after the summer that he had. After my initial conversation with them, I felt sure it wouldn't happen, but they called last week and told us Clayton was indeed approved for the granting of a wish!!!


The ball has been rolling pretty fast since that phone call.  Volunteers from Make-a-Wish spent lots of time here on Monday night.  They had several questions for Clayton, and as usual he kept trying to change the subject on them!

"What's your favorite color?"  "Tell Daddy I want to drive his truck."

"What's your favorite TV show?"  "Where's Daddy's trailer?"

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"  "Tell Daddy let me go to that school to get the trailer."

You get the gist . . . but when it came to the all-important question, he actually gave them the appropriate answer:  "What's your #1 wish in the whole world?"  "ride on Bill Gaither's bus!"  And from then on, it was "tell them I wanna ride on that bus." His official wish will be to meet Bill Gaither and the Homecoming Friends, watch them sing and RIDE ON THE BUS.  He was supposed to give two "back up" wishes, but we told them he pretty much had a one track mind and it was Bill Gaither or nothing!  Let's hope Bill comes through!
