Shawn’s Christmas letter (he’s 5):


Dear Santa Claus,
I have been a good boy.
My little brother has been a good boy too.
For Christmas I would like a small Christmas tree, a bike and a nerf gun.
My little brother wants a ball.
Could you please send us an Elf on the Shelf.
We will leave you cookies and milk.
Merry Christmas
Shawn


I love how kids sign their name so HUGE.

When I saw Shawn after Christmas, we looked at his Thomas the Tank Engine book together (and I read some of it to him). Then we both wore Burger King crowns and he said I was a princess. Then we pretended we were in a submarine and Scrappy was the sea monster, Charlie was the baby fishy and mommy was a shark. Then Shawn gave me a ring pop.
The End.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
