Was it too much to ask?

Was it too much to ask for? A small family of smiling happy children. Nothing extravagent...not six or eight kids...just two or three. One to hold each hand as we walk through the zoo. Two or three to keep each other company as they age. Was it REALLY that much to ask?

It seems like such a small dream when I look at it. It's so much less than many people ask for. We didn't want a million dollars or a bunch of material things. We just wanted

Now, as we watch that dream die (literally), I wonder what we are supposed to ask for. What else is there? Maybe we should ask for the million dollars and the material things. Maybe we'll get better luck with the things we don't really want....the things that don't really matter.
