Melanie wrote and illustrated this paper at school and it simply melted my heart when I saw it in her folder. I don’t think the most significant part of Christmas to me as a 5-year-old would have been Jesus in the stable. She also includes putting ornaments on the tree a family event in our house. She didn’t say I get presents as her most favorite part. I love that little girl. I know she loves her presents and I love to give them to her, but I couldn’t have been a prouder Mom when I read this. She has a heart of gold and I treasure her. As you are running around (as I am) trying to get everything done for the holidays make sure you take a moment to remember and cherish Jesus, our savior, being born in a stable. Merry Christmas!
