Well to continue my Christmas Memories...Christmas truly is for children...after all, Jesus came to earth in the form of a child. I just love the heart of a child especially at Christmas time. Here is one of the reasons why...
I have been answering the Santa letters that are sent to our local post office for the last 5 years...I love doing it. There is nothing that is cuter than seeing a child's hand scrawled letter with their wishes on it. It's so precious...most are the usual, "this is what I want you to bring me Santa", but usually every year I get one or two that just tug at the heart. I remember one I got a few years ago that this little girl wrote where what she wanted for Christmas was for her parents to stop fighting...and she didn't believe in Santa. She wanted a bead set and in order for her to believe she wanted that bead set for Christmas..so the hubby and I bought her a bead set, some hot wheels cars for her brothers and my hubby hand delivered them (with Santa hat on) to this families house...They were so excited...I'm sure that little girl had no doubt on Santa that year. I've had ones that asked for their grandmas to get better and their dad's to be back at home. It's sad, but so amazing of the believing and precious heart of a child. I'm blessed with each letter I receive and I have kept each and every one. They are my reassurance that there is still some Christmas magic out there in the world. What a true blessing!
May you embrace this Christmas season with the heart of a child this year!
