Aliya, Matthew and I discuss things, a lot. We talk about God, friends, family, the news on the radio, sports, school, me NOT being married, church, the bible, music, celebrities, etc. As you can imagine, it is usually me fielding questions, but not always. These children are very clever and always willing to share important information and sweet words of encouragement. They are very caring children and able to think beyond themselves. So much so, that many discussions end with "Even the poor people Tosha?"
Matthew always wants to know if the poor people have it too, like are they smart, do they know Jesus, go to college, get married, have kids, eat vegetables?!
And my answer is always "Yes Matt, the only thing most poor people don't have is money."
To which he answers, "And money isn't everything!"
