This is how dreams begin.
My little guy was already
a fan of firefighters,
but the chance to climb on board
a blazing red fire truck
at his 5th birthday party
turned fantasy into reality.
Make-believe morphed
into possibility.

He looked so small beside
that giant, candy-apple truck,
but I know inside he felt 10 feet tall.
Whether he holds on to this dream
or finds other passions to pursue
along his path,
I hope he never feels too small
to jump on board
and take his wildest dreams
out for a spin.
